In another forum there is a thread about Dennis Brennan's huge forthcoming
roundhouse kit. (don't consider that for your 4 x 8) However, I wondered just
how many surviving actual prototype roundhouses are there? I think the one
at Cass, W.V. is really an enginehouse, I did once visit a roundhouse just
south of Wheeling, W.V., and a B&O roundhouse at Grafton, W.V. Years ago
I was in the one at Durango, Colorado, but think they had a fire since then
so don't now know if that or the two W.V. ones still stand. Part of the modified
stone Colorado Midland roundhouse did stand west of Colorado Springs, but I think some road rerouting may have eliminated that?
There is the Southern one at Spencer, NC, and isn't there one at Steamtown in
Scranton, Pa.? What other ones around the country still exist? There may be
more of these still standing than water towers, which are hard to find.
