Perhaps people can share their thoughts about the roundhouse that goes with the turntable;

now that it is happily turning around. If I missed one please say where it is.

Will the structure be built to plans or just to historic photographs?

So will the new "show" be called "As the roundhouse turns?"  Grin

Hi Ted. Am not sure if we have the original plans, someone else can answer that question. We do have photographs.

I do know original Wiscasset  roundhouse had three tracks. When you stand on the turntable and look at the roundhouse the original roundhouse had the run thou track on the left hand track. The museum will build the new roundhouse with the run thou track on the right hand track. This track is in service at the present time, it runs from the North Yard.

The new roundhouse will essentially be a mirror image of the Wiscasset Roundhouse. At least externally.
