Mythical “Train Cars with Shackles” in them
Or in this case not so mythical. These train cars are multi deck car/truck- vehicle haulers coming from seaports and factories and Mexico. The shackles? Tie down chains so when its loaded the truck or cars stay where they put them.Barry Williams/Getty Images
It is far cheaper to haul by rail than to truck or drive them. Look at your larger rail yards and you will see these being unloaded and the vehicles put into vehicle trailers ( rolling parking lots) for transport to dealerships.
I meant it when I was going to stay away from the tin foil conspiracy stuff. I see these rail cars on a regular basis. This is real first hand knowledge, not trains to the Auschwitz Express…like some popular blogs are preaching.
