By my (very rough) count, that's about a 15 million dollar train!!.... locomotive excluded.

Wonder if JD took out the shipping insurance?? There'll likely need to be someone over 18 there to sign for it......

I wonder if they were headed to the vast prairies of Canada.
Maybe a few of them. Corporate farming has definitely taken hold here.

I bet a bunch were headed to custom combining crews. Now that's a cool life - I almost did that after my first year of University, got my Class 1A and all.....

The crews start in Texas in May-ish and head north all summer, ending up in Canada in the late fall. A friend of mine actually made it 12 straight months by finishing the season down under in AUS. If you want to see something impressive watch 6 brand new JD/Case/CAT combines move across a field with several super B's, a fuel truck, a service truck, and a bunch of RV's supporting them.

My guess is they are headed to a port for exporting. They export lots of machinery all over the world. It's not unusual to see a train loaded like that going into the port of Baltimore.

Do you think they'll miss one if I drove it off the lot some night? :laugh:
Not for at least a couple weeks. Get 2, they're small.
