This is a link to a 1943 photo from the Missouri State Digital Collections:

Use the Expand box in the upper right hand corner of the photo to enlarge it and scroll to enlarger it further. This is a very clear photo.

Nice detail of the blocking and cables.

And here is an excellent Bruce Smith model, courtesy of the Prototype Railroad Topics blog:

Mont Switzer, when will your models be ready??  A MONON flat with tank truck trailers?  Obviously you MUST model this.  😊

As it is 1943 they are probably military tank trailers being taken to docks for loading to send to buildup in England for Normandy invasion.

Schuyler,

I have a model of a brand new "cargo tank" loaded TOFC for delivery to local dealer.  Photos show many new tanks delivered by rail.
