Freight train seen carrying tanks in Kansas one day before Biden agreed to send infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine

  • last year
A freight train was seen carrying dozens of US tanks in Kansas the day before President Joe Biden announced they would send 31 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine.

Footage filmed on January 24 shows the tank-laden train approximately one mile west of Gorham on Highway 40.

The train is also carrying other armoured vehicles, including personnel carriers.

The US, UK and Germany have all approved sending tanks to help the war effort in Ukraine.

Oilfield contractor Eddie Johnson, who captured the moment, said: "I have no idea where they were heading.

"I just found it hilarious that I had just read about Biden possibly sending tanks, and then see a massive train full of them."

The US Department of Defence has been contacted for comment.
