The Rail Pavilion features locomotives, caboose, freight cars, steam crane, and plow. The Berlin Duty Train of the Cold War and the RS-1 Diesel engine of WWII are now on display as well. The Rail Yard also houses the Vietnam era SK-5 hovercraft, the only combat hovercraft to survive the Vietnam War and some of the largest line haul trucks in the Army.

Ground Operations

In one glance you can trace the development of the Army Jeep from World War II through Viet Nam. Each variant differs from its predecessor but you can easily tell the 'family' relationship. One tractor trailer was the forerunner of the Transportation Museum. It was a travelling recruiting show which eventually evolved into the Transportation Museum. And, yes, there is Super DUKW, an amphibious truck for moving cargo from ship to shore in logistics over the shore (LOTS) operations with no harbor facilities.
