Re: Gun Tubes, WWII Arms Depots, etc.


There are a number of government publications and a few web sites that list all government and military facilities.

The Depot in Hawthorne, Nevada has about 200 miles of track within bases boundaries. Most of the time they run two locos one of which I think is (or was) a very old and rare FM diesel. The following link has some photos of the depot taken from Mt. Grant an 11,200'+ mountain that shadows the valley from the west.
The gun barrels are stored on the "main base" near the highway.


I do have an extra "e" issue sometimes since my last name is Clarke with an "e" on the end.

Sam, it's funny what an "e" can do. I mean, you could be "borne and
raised" in less than 5 seconds anywhere on earth, and even do this
hundreds of times... but being "born and raised" takes longer and can
only happen once. :-)
