|Jack Delano Photo posted on Facebook|
[Photo from LC-DIG-fsa-8d23260 from LoC Search Result]
These notes used to be all of the information I could find on IC roundhouses. I have now moved the photos, maps, etc. that were in these notes to the yard notes per the table below.
Since IC had 360-degree roundhouses in both the 27th Street Yard and the Woodcrest Shop, I could not determine which roundhouse this photo came from. Then I remembered that Jack would take several photos when he visited a railroad location. Below the map is the result of searching his photos for "IC Chicago Roundhouse." In the resulting gallery of 20 photos, the middle thumbnail in the third row is of the coaling tower in Woodcrest. So I conclude that this photo was taken in Woodcrest.
(18th Street Yard)
|Shops replaced by Burnside.|
Roundhouse replaced by 27th Street.
|1+1||2||27th Street Yard|
|2/3 then 1/3||H||Hawthorn Yard||Half of the two-thirds roundhouse was torn down by 1938.|
|0||F||Fordham Yard||Locomotives were serviced at Burnside.|
|1+2/3||B||Burnside Shops||Roundhouses replaced by Markham. Torn down by 1938.|
Shops replaced by Paducah, KY.
|1/8+1/8||X||Wildwood Yard||I used X because W was used for Weldon.|
I'm guessing based on the foundations I saw in the 1938 aerial.
|1||M||Markham Yard||Woodcrest was the name of the engine servicing facility.|
The existing turntable is not the one that was used by the roundhouse.
