Located opposite from where you're standing stood the roundhouse and adjoining machine shop facility for the Danbury Yard. Built in circa 1914 the structure had 9 stalls for storage, servicing and performing light repairs to the many locomotives that passed through Danbury. It was considered the heart of the yard. Unfortunately a series of fires destroyed much of the complex and it was finally torn down in the mid 80's. all that remains of the complex is the turntable, which is on of the last operating turntables in Connecticut. The 95 ft turntable was used for turning the steam locomotives for their return trips or for storage in the building.
Please remain on walkway when touring this historic artifact.
