Another ferry ship - although it may be a covered hold deal rather than a barge - runs freightcars from Mobile, AL across the Gulf of Mexico to Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico. I had a pieced freight make the trip.

they look like toy train sets on a boat!! shits cool as fuck.

anyone know if any of the US fr8s have made it to europe?

somethin else i thought about, which may be why they dont IF they dont go to europe.

and thats if the tracks are the same distance apart or whatever over there, know what i mean?

maybe pointless, but whatever.

those boxes that they put on intermodels often if not always make it overseas. .they seem to buff them pretty quickly, but its a neat idea.

MY PLAN:

As they are loading the cars onto the barge, you secretly hop into one of those gondolas w/your supplies and chill till sail. Then when they are off shore, the fun begins. Pull off as many pieces as you can. Then when the get close enough to shore. Hop on back into your gondola and as soon as all is clear. Jet to your designated meeting location where your friend is waiting for you, then take the next car ferry back...

Anyone down?

I bet it costs a small fortune to get your freight cargo on that barge. I wonder whats in the cars. Something expensive im sure.
