The questions concerning the movement of the naval guns from
production, to testing, storage and installation are interesting, and
remind us that similar proceedures were in place for much of the
ordinance used during the War.
Does anyone know of a good history or listing of the various arsenals
and depots which were in operation during WW II? Many seem to have
been located where they could be served by multiple rail lines. How
did they work together? Were freight cars modified or built for
dedicated service to connect them? etc?
