    Better than the illusive shackle train cars here's Good, clear Pictures of what are undoubtably stackable quick build prison legos.

    Don't panic yet,I understand there's a state prison fairly close to that site though the article mentions "vernal" Utah which is quitefar awayfrom draper. But this isone, if another train load shows up in hotlanta wednesday, I'd be callin Jack mclamb for advice..

    I towed hundreds of these things to Gitmo a few years back (before 9-11). Makes you wonder what they were planning to keep cooped up there, don't it?

    :shock:Now that is scary!
    Do you know if they have been moved out of Utah?...if so where to?
    It seems to me that the person who has taken the pix has interest in this type of "stuff" as they have taken pix of the inside as well.

    Thinking outloud.......i wonder......if the person who took these pix, would remember what was the Final Destination and who was the consignee / end user? this could be obtained from the original paperwork?????

    More on these prefab units:

    <table width="615" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr valign="top"><td class="txStoryText" width="100%">"It's kind of seamless," Stack said.
    One day last week, an Albany Port Railroad spur was humming with cranes unloading prefabricated concrete jail cells bound for Troy.
    "We're basically just doing the unloading and the transportation to the jail," Biers said.
    A few hundred feet away, workers from Peckham Inc. were using steam to warm the liquid asphalt inside railroad freight cars and transfer it to tanker trucks for local distribution.

    Tindall Corp. of Conley, Ga., has a $4.2 million contract to manufacture and deliver the concrete cells for Rensselaer County's $50 million jail expansion project in South Troy.

    Tindall, which also has manufactured cells for jails in Seneca, Steuben, St. Lawrence and Essex counties, always looks to deliver its cells by rail -- though this is the first time it has used a port to transfer to trucks, said Cherylene Sorrells, who coordinates Tindall's rail shipping.
    The company loads the concrete prison modules onto a flatbed rail car and ships them to the destination. "We have to find a siding where we can unload, and we have to find an unloading place where we can put a crane," Sorrells said. "We unload by crane and then we truck the modules to the job site. It could be from two miles to 150 miles away," Sorrells said.
    Shipping by highway would cost far more, she said. Each two-cell module is about 15 feet wide when loaded onto a truck and trailer.
    "You can only put one on a truck. Typically, we can get three on a rail car," she said.
    The cost differential was underscored when one set of cells needed early in the Rensselaer County job didn't make it onto the right train in Georgia.
    "Getting the cars placed like they should be is critical for us," Sorrells said. "These m
    odules have to go in order. They're like Lincoln Logs."
    The cost of delivering the single module by truck was about $17,000, compared with about $10,000 for three modules traveling by rail, she said.

    I would love to hear a plausible reason for these other then what you suggest. I don't really subscribe to the camps and such, but hard to refute these.
