Still in current use if you model US Railroads.
I forget the exact details (without looking the relevant magazine up) but within the past 12 months, a spare gun barrel has been moved from a US museum, by rail, to the USS New Jersey which is moored as a Museum ship at Camden, NJ.
Photos of the move were certainly featured in the US Railpace Magazine.

EDIT - Found this news report from January this year. The wagons used are a bit more modern than the PRR model version!

16"(410mm ) gun firing a 1.2 tonne (metric ) shell up to 20 miles last used in the gulf 1991 for coastal bombardment((USS Missouri bb63 ) and armed with tomahawk cruise missiles -what a monster. Not forgetting the rest of the iowa class-Iowa ,New Jersey ,Missouri, Wisconsin-and lets not forget they didn't have one gun - but 9 -16"and 20 5" guns plus  50 cals -not the sort of thing I want popping up on my horizion !!
