Trains get gear on track for exercise Ssang Yong

An M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank prepares to drive off a lowboy truck at the Gwangyang port rail station, Republic of Korea March 22 during exercise Freedom Banner 2014. Four M1A1 Abrams tanks and one M-88 Hercules recovery vehicle were transported via low-boy trucks from an initial staging area to the Gwangyang Port Rail-Station where they will be loaded onto train carts destined for Pohang, Republic of Korea, to support amphibious assault exercise Ssang Yong 14, which is a component of Marine Expeditionary Force Exercise 2014. The train is owned by the U.S. Army’s 25th Transportation Battalion and operated by privately licensed Korean Railroad contractors. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Matt Myers/Released)
