Remarks & Notes 
Escorting BNSF train JPTRDEN on the Joint Line on April 15, 2005 are hi-rail trucks, both in front of and following the train, carefully inspecting the right-of-way. Here the procession is slowly moving northbound between Spruce and Greenland on April 15, 2005. The train is hauling a large 745-ton Belleli vessel that is being shipped from Houston, Texas, to Denver, Colorado, using the “world’s largest railroad car,” Schnabel CEBX No. 800. The heavy load is going to a Commerce City oil refinery near Denver, and is specially-powered by brand new General Electric ES44DC No. 7687. Since this time, in mid-2012, Westinghouse has renumbered this car from CEBX 800 to WECX 800 and has added another Kasgro-built twin car to the Schnabel fleet, WECX 801, which now takes the title of largest railcar in the world. In the background is a snow-covered 14,110-foot Pikes Peak.
