    As the title implies, can you still see land from the 10 mile box cars?

    IMO depends on the clarity of the day, but even days where you can barely make out that horizon it isn't gonna be much

    At a distant of 6' above the water your visibility is about 3 miles due to the curvature of the earth. Weather conditions can make this less.
