Incredible.  Every new post amazes me more. 

Do you make your own decals too?

Thank you amato1969 and John

No John the decals are from Roco Minitanks from the 90s.

I think they are for the old 5-ton fuel truck.

I'm waiting for the red white safety stripes and Hazardous Material Placards from microscale and the last four Abrams for the bravo company
Union Pacific, Amtrak, VRE and US Army

Modern Modelers-

My modeling cutoff date is 1957 so I haven't been following this thread and don't want to sort through the many pages of comentary.
Excuse the duplication if it has already been posted, but I just came across a TTX video about TPDX flats maintained by TTX specifically for DOD vehicle traffic.

What happens when the “locking channel” gets filled with ice (or other crud)?

That’s what E-1’s are for.

Having recently built a basic military train to represent a WWII era US Army Medium tank company, both vehicles and troops, I found this PRR ad from WWII to be very interesting.   While today the troops don't move by rail and the make up of divisions is quite different, it is still an interesting way to show how much effort is involved.
