Remarks & Notes 
"Field of Trains" - always thought I'd write a "Field of Trains movie one day, but I think that may be a pipe dream. Still, that's exactly what this soon to be removed image is of, those are all friction bearing US Navy box cars, once used for weapons storage and loading - now retired. The box cars are stored in bunkers to protect against any accidental explosion.

There are times when many engines, cars or cabooses are concentrated in a location. Such sites are for storage, economic reasons, active power needs or for rebuilding. For others, wear and tear have brought their usefulness to and end.
