Well...we've been cranking those things out for 10+years now. We ran two man rooms in them (2 two man rooms on each of those...). They were pretty decent, if not close quarters.

They have AC units on top, they're definitely for the FEMA workers. Not for the guests.

This is a real FEMA train.



Cleverly disguised as 'automobile carriers' they are enormous and ominous



Open the gaping doors and fill the interior with FEMA coffins.

EXACTLY.

They are however ADA and CALDOT low-emission vehicle compliant.

They're rolling duplexes for RR workers. I'd love to have one and a caboose. Better yet, one of those WW II armored trains with flak guns and a tank turret. Here's a link to an illustration of a Polish armored train.

FEMA trains aren't real. The government would never plan for civil unrest and have a means of dealing with refugees available. Fucking conspiracy theorists

Yep. They'll stack us up like human hotdogs. Then they'll toss us into FEMA coffins and chuckle menacingly all the while.
