This black and white photograph shows a load of Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company's piggy-back trailers, at Sullivan's Curve, along the Cajon Pass in California. In the railroad industry, the trailers travel on flat cars, (TOFC), commonly referred to as a piggy-back service. This intermodal form of transportation, between the railroad and trucking services, allows for freight to be delivered in half the time.
