An eerie foreshadowing of the ads from 1943, but here it's all in peacetime and the Santa Fe can haul the largest things made. Coast defense 14-inch railroad guns, with range of 23 miles and weight of 365 tons each; no problem moving them through California.

Ad for the Evans Autorailer, published in a late 1930's issue of FORTUNE. As a bus it didn't make the grade, but as a maintenance vehicle this kind of concept is still in use.
