The munition railway was constructed because the ammunition used in the 38 cm guns was too heavy to be simply carted around on a handcart. Consequently, a system of narrow tracks was set up inside the battery area. Shells and charges were transported by small diesel locomotives to the four gun emplacements from six large ammunition bunkers, which were placed a bit back in the battery area.
