Note the really old carvings in the mineral-stained sandstone on the walls and ceiling. This little cave was walled-off on one end, making me wonder what the area was for. Lighting is a set of three candles and two LED flashlights and a cigarette.
Raab strolling where the coal and ore would be dumped by trains that traveled along the top of the concrete pilings.
A few of the stalls in the older section of the roundhouse, the noon sky peeking in.
In the modern control room at the base of the white elevator tower are the electronics that ran the newer building, its rail components and boat-loading component. The superstructure permeates all spaces here, as can be seen with the crossing I-beams in the main office.
The train loading tower (left), and elevators. Check out that giant flagpole/lightning rod.
This was the exterior wall of the roundhouse; engines would have entered on the other side and machinery would line this side, hence the big windows for natural light.
I’ll remember the neon glow fondly.
