The ammunition 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 further back in the battery area.

 

In the countryside which surrounds Bunkermuseum Hanstholm a part of the old munition track has been reestablished. With the munition train you can take a ride through the battery and pass one of the large munition bunkers and one of the bunkers, which housed a 38 cm gun. The trip will last for about 10 minutes.
