Description

By the time WWII broke out, large naval gun technology had progressed to the point that the big 14" and 16" guns could fire up to 390 rounds before the barrels needed to be re-lined. However, this work could only be performed at the Washington Navy Yard in Philadelphia, PA. Therefore, all naval guns were transported by rail between here and the naval bases on the east coast, such as at Brooklyn and Boston, and the west coast base at Bremerton, WA. Due to its vast rail system, the Pennsylvania Railroad become instrumental in the movement of these guns and the company developed special equipment to carry out this task, which is the subject of our latest freight car load.Kit No. 215 is designed to be hauled on two Pennsylvania F22 class "Gun Flats" and includes an HO scale Naval Gun Barrel (representative of both 16"/45 and 16"/50 naval gun barrels)

Kit includes laser-cut wood blocking and hardware, simulated canvas wraps, and signage.
