Abandoned Locomotive Workshop

Locomotive maintenance facility in Washington, Indiana...halfway point in the Sin/Saint B&O line from Cincinnati to St Louis. 2 giant buildings serviced by a LATERAL connector on rails, instead of a turnstile like it's a pair of rails that travels horizontally between the 2 buildings. A locomotive might come in door 1 of building 1, go out the opposite side, get on the lateral connector and be moved sideways to the right or left to move into position to enter door 10 of building 2. That arrangement can service far more than a roundhouse arrangement....but those days are gone.
