So these went from Boca Chica to KSC and now back to Boca Chica?
I counted 6 cryogenic nitrogen storage tanks at the Masseys test site. The place is undergoing a major renovation right now from what I've seen.I'm starting to think that Masseys will be a cryogenic testing station not only for the test tanks, but also for the Starship and Superheavy.This will greatly speed up the launch process, avoid congesting the launch site, and they won't have to close the beach for a cryogenic test.I hope what I'm seeing is right.
They're going to need another crane.

Old Masseys clubhouse being demolished, new Starfacotry parts being loaded on to a flatbed in route to Sanchez/Build site, a lot of new ground work. Live: youtu.be/ZbRpMqJgncs
S26.1 has concluded it's testing at masseys and is probably going to be taken back to Sanchez site soon.@JaxLR07
Deep caisson drilling rig being assembled at Masseys,could this be for a raptor test stand?Gallery at http://patreon.com/RGVaerial

Massey’s gun range is being turned into a rocket test facility. Perfect match.
The rocket testing facility at the Massey’s site will be more than twice as large as the suborbital test site at the launch complex in terms of capacity. Elon downplayed the significance of that facility pretty drastically. SpaceX dismantled most of the Pad39A tank farm this.
It’s looking like this tank farm will have closer to 3x capacity than the suborbital farm. The question is how many test stands they will have. Theoretically boosters can be tested on transport stands so predicting the scope of this operation is near impossible at moment.
