Remarks & Notes 
In April 2005, a large 745-ton Belleli vessel was shipped from Houston, Texas, to Denver, Colorado, using the “world’s largest railroad car,” Schnabel CEBX No. 800. The heavy load was going to a Commerce City oil refinery, and is seen here passing through Denver on April 15, 2005. The train was specially-handled 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. Two cabooses are used by the Schnabel crew to keep an eye on the clearances and load during its travel. The background is dominated by Invesco Field at Mile High (now Sports Authority Field at Mile High), home of the Denver Broncos. To the left is Denver’s light rail main, while on the middle right, the big roller coaster on the right is part of Elitch Gardens Theme Park, built on the site of Colorado and Southern’s Rice Yard.
