Abstract:

In February 1976, a request from Commander, Fort Ord, California, for a rail and motor system outloading capability study was forwarded to MTMC. The principal objective of the study was to determine the ability of Fort Ord to support the deployment of the 7th Division and the United States Strategic Army Forces STRAF deployable units at the post. The scope of the study was subsequently enlarged to include the subordinate commands at Camp Roberts and Fort Hunter Liggett, those commercial facilities within 25 miles of the installations, and any physical improvements to the installations that could significantly increase present capabilities. To comply with this request, MTMC engineers conducted on-site surveys in California, 1 through 12 March 1976. The major finding of the survey and the ensuing analysis is that while the rail systems at Fort Ord and Camp Roberts are generally in good condition, their outloading capabilities are severely restricted this is due to a lack of outloading plans, materials, and other necessary elements. Motor outloading capability varied from very limited at Fort Ord to excellent at Camp Roberts. Fort Hunter Liggett has no rail facilities and a negligible motor outloading capability. Commercial rail facilities within 25 miles of Fort Ord and Camp Roberts were in generally good condition with one excellent outloading facility at Salinas, approximately 12 miles from Fort Ord.
