Rather than start a new thread, I decided to resurrect this nearly decade-old one on B&M Roundhouses. There were reports that the old B&M roundhouse in Portsmouth NH had been torn down but I'm happy to report that it is still standing although it's in deplorable condition. No roof and half the side walls have collapsed. The turntable pit is filled with junk and brush. The turntable bridge is still there as well but the central tower has fallen over.

For comparison, here's a shot of the roundhouse in 2006.

Re: CVRA7's list; Perhaps already mentioned, but there is an extensive list of roundhouses, turntables and their remains on www.steamlocomotive.com. , you just have to poke around a bit to find it.

Add to Connecticut Roundhouses -
Former Norwich & Worcester roundhouse - about 8 stalls - with a covered turntable, along North Main St., Norwich, CT. Building is in decent shape, has a good roof. Apparently a furniture warehouse.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's a PLUMBING supply company, at least when I visited there some years baqck.
It may have changed since then, it was at least 6 years ago.
