Epic waistland?

It looks like a scene of a derailment, yet all the trucks are missing. Possibly a hundred (at least 30) tankers side by side in multiple piles.

I'm guessing IPSCO doesn't have enough rail sidings to store all their junk, so they simply take retired cars off the rails and stack them, just like 20' and 40' IMS boxes.
Thanks guys. I called it epic, since if I were to turn 360 degrees, they'd be at least 100 cars like this, stacked all around me. Really weird feeling there, like there's been a derailment and you're the only survivor (no one is around). I always get that feeling whenver I go to a scrap yard - so much things all around that were only living yesterday, with no one around today... It's hard to explain.
