Crawford Roundhouse Demolition

A big thank you goes out to Ian Deck, a regular reader and commenter on this site, for passing along these photos and allowing me to post them.

He took these photos the evening of June 15, 2010, as demolition started on the remains of Crawford Yard roundhouse.

Sad to see more of Windsor’s rail history disappear….

Here’s the location of the roundhouse. It’s kind of tucked out of the way, off Crawford.
