Nothing special here, but thought I would share. After High School, knowing I would come into the draft and not sure about college, I went to work for Tuthill Spring co. in Momence, Il. The building with furnaces, stamping equipment was at one time a 6 stall Roundhouse for the C&EI railroad. Tuthill bought it, and using the pits for cooling and tempering the steel, removing trackage to it. Moved their equipment and started making auto, truck, tractor, etc. springs. The flooring still had the original wooden blocks, doors for the engines and overhead cranes. There were still signs and posters on the walls from C&EI. They were dismantling the table, but left the pit there. In fact till late 70s the pit was still there. Space limited the trackage into the Roundhouse so they overlapped. In all the years searching for pictures of the roundhouse, these 2 showed up yesterday. Today, the original Roudhouse still has the frontage were the offices were, but the rest has been extended, parking lot and pit filled and concreted over. Its a Pallet factory today. First photo, roundhouse is back of photographer, small engine shed shown on left. Second photo shows engine on turntable with trackage into roundhouse. Photos from June, 1926.
