Looks like one of those tank proving grounds to me.

That tall van in the middle would probably go squish in a tunnel or under a bridge if the middle of the car wasn't depressed like that.

Note the extreme difference in height of the Freightliner JT42CWR ("Class 66") compared to the GP40 next to it.
