When they first ramped up the Iraq War we saw a lot of military trains headed east through Houston to the Port of Beaumont. For some reason they were shipping a lot of military vehicles out of Beaumont and New Orleans.

 

We avoided the military trains like the plague. Could a train get any hotter?

I used to work in Barstow's Calif, Yermo Rail Yard loading Military equipment to Home Base and oversea's, it's not really 'hot' since they remove all sensitive equipment, it's locked and you couldn't even hijack anything off it if you wanted. Second they don't make any stops at any rail yards that are unsecured.

 

I doubt there's been an "influx" or alot more trains yet, it's been the same for the last 7 years. Probably just units coming home and going training to different JNTC's.

 

Nothing special

I see M1A1s and APCs on the line here about every other month. I live right next to the tracks so its an easy scope.

A train could get hotter than military, but they're probably not bringing it back: the "white train" that used to run nuclear materials up in Washington State (Hanford area). I think that one stopped running in the 80's.

Come to think of it I believe it was straight up nuclear warheads, so it was military of the highest order.

I don't know, they stop all the time in the local yard, no more than a day, but they stop...

i was bombing a commuter transit line that doubles as a main freight line to one of america's largest ports during the run up to the iraq war. a long train went by with humvees and 155mm artillery guns among other things.

In the present political climate, I caution everyone to stay strictly away from any sort of military cargo, truck, train, ship, whatever. If you get caught painting on a military vehicle you may very well go to prison. It's not worth the risk. I say "Don't Do It."
