Looking toward the Roundhouse past the B&O Caboose. First view inside the roundhouse.  Notice the support uprights on the right and left sides of the tracks All the structural members in this roundhouse are cast iron. They were formed in Baltimore and assembled in Martinsburg like a big erector set.
A view of the top of the roundhouse.  Notice the cast iron structural members even up there. The turntable pit. The other side of the turntable.  Notice that the bricks on the bottom of the pit extend only part way now.
This is actually the bridge construction building.  Bridge and right of way parts would be built here. This is a 2 story building and the floor of the 2nd story is suspended from the rafters of the roof!   If you look closely at the tracks on the floor, you will see that one set of tracks has 2 gauges: one is the standard railroad gauge; the other is the gauge of the carts they used to move materials within the buildings. An exterior view of the bridge construction building. Notice that it is a 2 story building.
