> Your load looks like they could be components of a main or reduction gear set (transmission) used in very large ships.

Given that the car and load were photographed in Alamosa, at the end of a branchline about as far from the sea as you can get and with no manufacturing facility capable of producing such a gear, we can safely rule out a marine component. A reduction gear for the Navajo Reservoir power project is far more sensible.
