Alpha Site: Concord, California

I was looking at Contra Costa County, California for another project when I spied this odd-looking place, just east of the city of Concord:

"Graveyard," was my first thought, which turns out to be not far off. Zoom in and you'll see that the grid is traced with railroad tracks. Any guesses as to what it could be? I'll post the answer here tomorrow at noon.

I'm pretty sure its an array of bunkers for large naval ammunition, namely warheads for the Navy's SLCMs.

Spot on, Jake D. I had to look up SLCM: it's the acronym for the Tomahawk cruise missles (Sea-Launched Cruise Missile).
