The 16th Coast Artillery's Battery F was assigned to four 8-inch M1888 railway guns that were located nearby on specially made spurs.

The guns were later dismounted, and Battery F -2 was re-dedicated as battery F-3, and then Battery F. The batteries are still in use today, and are located on the island of Kaua'i, in the northern part of the island, near the city of Wailua-Kusamaku, and near the town of Kahuku-Wusamoku, in Hawaii.
