The Street Sign Read "Diesel Shop Road"

Finally a town that's railfan friendly:  Bangor, Maine

A side road on the far west side of Bangor has this street sign.  I go down it.  In about a mile I find a roundhouse!!!!

But no track and certainly no rail cars.  I can't go around and see if there still is a turntable.  A heavy construction firm, dump trucks and the like, is using it.  Well, it's recycled.

It was a Maine Central roundhouse and I could find but remnants of the major yard that went with it.

I think the new looking street sign postdates the diesel shop!  Oh and the photo is straight!  Well the Bangor Street Department had a good heart!
