This was the main terminal for
the Key System Railway during World War II.

The Shipyard Railway - also known as the "Pass the Ammunition"
Railway - was built by the Key System for the United States Maritime
Commission. In operation from 1943 through 1945, the railway was
crucial in transporting workers to Richmond's Kaiser Shipyard during
wartime gasoline and tire rationing.
