Re: PRR Gun Flats on the West Coast

While it's true that no battleships were built on the West coast after the WW I era, there were several built earlier, from USS Oregon, BB-3, (launched 1893), Union Iron Works, San Francisco,  to USS California, BB-44, (launched 1919), Mare Island Navy Yard.

As far as I know, in addition to ordnance, much of the machinery and armor plate would have been produced in the East, generating quite a bit of potential traffic for early STMFC modelers.
