Another HD flat CB&Q

Found another photo of a GSC HD flat car, with an outbound load at Mesta Machine 1959:

Any idea who the load was for? They look like bodies for HD shears.

Thanks!

Could be frames for cold-heading (forging) machines.

Their symmetry also suggests something to do with a very large magnet.

The load looks to be 1/2 half of a hot or cold steel rolling mill stand. Two castings are shown making one stand of a steel rolling mill. The screw down machinery on top of the stand is added later. Regards..Jerry Albin
