Interestingly, the original photo showing the new car shows it is a 40 ton car; must have been built with older trucks reclaimed from scrapped cars. In this latest photo, that capacity has shrunk to just 65,000 lbs., 32-1/2 tons, and the light weight is almost equal to the capacity. Must be some really heavy permanent racks installed. Auto engine service?
