Military Transport Train From Above
Training requires massive amounts of equipment!
Seen here exiting Camp Roberts in San Luis Obispo County, this military train is transporting equipment used by the California National Guards for their annual training.
Camp Roberts was turned over to the California National Guard by the US ARMY in 1971 and serves the California National Guard as well as British Army for their annual training exercises.
During World War II, 436,000 Field and Infantry troops were trained there. Also, the base had a 750 bed hospital and kept German and Italian prisoners of war.
Imagine the amount of supplies that were need and transported by rail with steam locomotives back in those days!
