All right guys, here's the assignment. Go to the files and start posting roundhouse photos, preferably in use and in steam. No steam here, but it looks like they pulled out the day before. This is Venice, IL (across from St. Louis) on the GM&O before the ICG. Kinda ramshackle, but neat. In the future, I'll go to the files and start posting more in steam. I'm sick of dizmal pictures.
Second one is on the IC at Jackson, TN in 1953
Third one is IC at Paducah, KY in 1957.

Now for some of my favorite road.
Frisco at Monett, MO in 1948
Frisco at Ft. Smith, AR in 1945 under construction.
Frisco at Lindenwood (St. Louis, MO) in 1938.

Last for now, but not least is the Frisco roundhouse at Enid, OK in 1940, home to myriad 2-8-0s, 4-6-0s,4-4-0s and 2-10-0s. Nice lazy Sunday afternoon scene with all kinds of snoozing smaller power.
Now it's your turn.

I was looking at the 4026 and its doghouse seems to be offset to the right. Is this correct or am I drunk??

Here is an aerial photo of the Rock Island's roundhouse at El Reno Okla. in 1945. This was a Standard Oil Co. PR photo so I have been told.

I think it's just the angle of the photo and the fact that the roundhouse door is blocking part of the tender side that makes it look off center. They were all centered up on the water deck and nestled up against the back of the coal bunker.

Frisco, Sherman Texas. My Uncle Erritt was a hogger on the Frisco out of Sherman from the early 20th century until the mid 1950's.

Interesting how the Pine Bluff stalls apparently were lengthened at the FRONT, or turntable side (Or is that part of the original structure?).
