    There has been a number of sightings of military vehicles shipping via railroad around the country. My guess is that a lot of them are headed to Fort Irwin, California for participation in training events at the National Training Center located there. It’s where they train armored units in desert warfare using dedicated OPFOR units located there. (OPFOR = Opposing Forces in training terms.)
