The train is utilizing 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 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.
