    That's a good question, Al. I wondered the same thing, but couldn't find a picture of the entrance. It must have been around the back side. Here's a shot from a different angle, with more tracks.

    Yes. I wonder how they powered the turntable, or whatever you call it, in 1864. Horses? Steam?

    I can't find a picture. :( ;)

    They sure did. They destroyed the railroad tracks and bent the rails before they left.

    Trains never go into a roundhouse. They're only for Locomotives.
