A Brief History of the Martinsburg, WV Roundhouse

The roundhouse is in Martinsburg, West Virginia, and has been a part of two major events in the history of the United States: The Civil War and the Great Railroad Strike of 1877. These two events alongside the architecture of the building make the site a National Historic Landmark.

The first roundhouse in Martinsburg was built in the 1840s as a part of the B&O Railroad.

The roundhouse was completed in 1849, but it was destroyed during the Civil War

Any chance the picture at Sloss is a high enough resolution that the hoppers on the high line can be identified? I can see that the sides say S.S.S. & I. Co. That would be Sloss Sheffield Steel & Iron. They had a fleet of cars that ran on their own road, but there are few pictures to get the reporting marks and numbers off of.

I’m always looking for pictures in that area to try and identify as many as I can.

PS The editorial to photo ratio in the PDF is typical. I realize the text goes into “deep” detail but unless people can go through all of the diesel material in the archives, some of it will never be known or published. As there are presently 7,278 scans in the SRHA digital, diesel files, obviously, many more than we can put in the books. The “plan” then, will be to have an accompanying “Photo Supplement” book with very little written content beyond references to the main book. It will be available separately (no duplicate photos).

In any case, volunteers to help with the research, “quality control” and layout will speed things up considerably.

As one of the SRHA people that handle the SR.io group, a notice comes to me whenever anyone joins or leaves the group. 

This one, for long time SRHA member Dick Fisher, was a sad reminder that, last year, we lost an extremely knowledgable member that had a wealth of railroad experience….and was a really, really nice guy! I appreciate being reminded about Dick but sad to think again he is lost to us.

The "Green Light” shined a little dimmer with his passing….

PS Might Bill Schafer post Dick’s mention in the current TIES Magazine “I have finished my course” for all to see?

moderated last minute reminder Hagerstown AG Center train show THIS Saturday, May 7, 9 am-1:30 pm

Cohen Bob
 

Just that last minute reminder to check out all the goodies available at the Hagerstown Ag Center train show on Saturday, May 7.

There is usually an eclectic variety available at the show and it varies often from show to show.

Models, parts, books, magazines, timetables, railroadianna - it's usually there.

Come on by.

There is an admission fee for entry which helps benefit the club that owns the Antietam station just a few miles south on Rt. 65.

Hope to see you there!

Work sessions on the third Friday and Saturday of every month at the TVRM/SRHA/L&NHS archives building in Chattanooga are open to anyone. (archives@...)

PS Dozens of Southern ETTs that include all of the train numbers in these examples have also been scanned. When manpower is available, the entire set, from the Richmond and Danville to Norfolk Southern, will be published for sale on line.

Passenger Train Switching on the Southern 1940
From: George Eichelberger
Date: Sun, 01 May 2022 07:29:13 PDT

Among the many binders and notebooks in the SRHA Archives, Marvin Black collection, Binder #141 includes extensive documentation on the details of which Danville Division stations passenger engineers set out and picked up cars at various stations.

 

Although the BLE agreement for passenger trains specified that passenger train road crews were responsible for handling those moves, the agreement said said it would not be done if there was a local switching crew available that could do the work. As Engineers were claiming overtime hours in 1939/40, Division Management investigated which time claims were appropriate given the local conditions at the time of the claim. The resulting documentation provides some very detailed descriptions of picking up and setting out all types of cars from passenger trains.

 

For model railroaders, the file is a solid rationale to incorporate some switching into their passenger train operations.

 

I’ve attached page 1 of a 3 page memo apparently dated 9-17-1940 as an example. (Posting the single page is an attempt to limit storage space on the .io groups. If any one is interested in seeing pages 2 and 3, send me an email off-list. Better yet, come to one of the SRHA Archives work sessions at the TVRM/SRHA/L&NHS archives building in Chattanooga the third Fri and Sat of every month and review everything in Binder #141 and the other passenger car/train material.

Our 2022 DFW Red River RPM is very pleased to announce that both Bethlehem Car Works and Union Station Products will be in attendance at our event. John has a new CB&Q heavyweight kit whose release should be close to our RPM and Mark and I have been working on a new Rock Island heavyweight RPO that will be available. Mark will have a CNC machine present and will be cutting sides at the event. 

Kevin Leddy and myself are the organizers for this event and both of us are extensive passenger car modelers. A portion of my Free-mo Dallas Union Terminal module set will be on display as well as a modified Santa Fe depot built by Kevin. 

More information can be found at RedRiverRPM.org

locked Switching by Passenger Crews..from the SRHA Archives Marvin Black Collection

George Eichelberger
 

In January, 1939, as a result of an inquiry from the Engineer’s Union, Southern asked for detailed information on switching work done by passenger crews at Spartanburg, Charlotte, Salisbury, Danville and other area stations. Notebook No. 141 in the Marvin Black collection includes many detailed descriptions, sometimes including the number of feet the move required.

Most interesting, this series of correspondence describes more about set outs and pick ups than we normally see.

This, and all other, note books from Marvin are in the archives and available for research.

Jim,

I remember Red as a very quiet and reserved man.  He never talked about his personal life and rarely talked about the railroad.  Rarely did he initiate a conversation of any kind.  Four days a week for four years I was his direct supervisor and many times I reloaded film in my own camera in his office.  Yet he never said a word about his own prowess with a camera.  Never asked about what I was shooting.  I shot a ton of Kodachrome in those days and I sure wish I would have known about Red's interest.

Don,

 

Yes, “Red” was Ed Griffin’s nickname.  I took a lot of pix at that shop area 1977-1981 while in college at WCU and living at home in Franklin.  After graduation, I visited the area several times but Ed had retired and moved back to Alabama.  When I talked with him circa 1990 about borrowing his slides, he was trying to remember me.  Eventually, he said “weren’t you the red headed guy with a camera that came around a lot?”.  Yep, guilty as charged.  I have many good memories shooting around the fueling racks, both ends of the yard and a couple from inside of the roundhouse looking out with a GP30 framed by the #1 stall doors.  It’s all gone now, even the fueling area.

Jim,

I was a general foreman at Asheville from 1978 - 1982.  During my four years there, the 1st shift roundhouse foreman was a guy I knew as "Red" Griffin.  Would this be the same man?
