This shot really puts into perspective the size of this hydrotreater, as well as the Schnabel car used to move it! The hydrotreater weighs 570 metric tons and is 115 feet long. It is also a bit wider than the average load, which is why signals and switch stands had to be (temporarily) removed at points along BNSF during the move. This was the largest item ever unloaded (to date) at the Houston Port Authority!
