How was the rest of the complete weapon transported?



Here's the M2A1 transport wagon (the M1A1 was used with the howitzer barrel)



A crane was generally used to assemble the complete gun....

There is plenty of images of the barrel being transported and the whole weapon in firing position but I haven't found anything showing how the trails and the rest (everything except the barrel) was transported.
