This black and white photograph shows truck trailers from the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company being prepared for shipment on rolling stock. These trailers on flatcars (TOFC) are 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.
