Hello. Yes, I know the roundhouse and half of the yard is at Silver Grove is gone. The roundhouse which I'm speaking of is the Stevens Yard roundhouse, which burnt down in 1978 with Chessie System 2101. I want to bookmark the site of the once-was roundhouse in Google Earth. Any if all help is appreciated. Thanks.

Never mind. I found it! I just used the historical imagery feature on Google Earth and saw a large pit, and the concerete remains of where the Reading 2101 and a diesel met their fate.
