Feeling Depressed?

I'm not, but I caught a couple of big depressed center cars recently. The smaller car (only a 12 axle) was hauling a transformer through St. Paul, MN.
The larger 16 axle car, KRL 16801, is a pretty new car, designed to haul up to 810,000 lbs! It was waiting at the Rice's Point Yard in Duluth. I'm guessing a large load is inbound by ship to the Port of Duluth.


  1. This car can carry loads up to 810,000 lbs. The empty weight is 348,000.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out, I'll make the edit!
