Abandoned Turntable and Roundhouse at Maybrook, New York, circa 1979 (editor's title)

Maybrook turntable and roundhouse
Abandoned turntable and roundhouse at Maybrook, New York, circa 1979. The small structure in the foreground is the operating cabin for the turntable, while the large structure in the background at far right is a concrete coaling tower, once used to fuel steam locomotives. Maybrook was a large junction that included the Erie, Delaware & Hudson, and New Haven railroads. The yard closed due to the 1974 Poughkeepsie Bridge fire, which severed an important line and forced traffic onto alternative routes.
