A general overview of steam and diesel locomotive terminal facilities on American railroads,. It shows roundhouses, coaling, sanding, and water stations, ready tracks, washers, cinder plants, and other facilities needed to service steam locomotives, many of which were later converted for diesel use. The second in a series of small books following Steam Locomotive Coaling Stations and Diesel Locomotive Fueling Facilities, published in 2002. This book concentrates on the locomotive terminal that was found in most railroad yards and at division points. It is not exhaustive in treatments by any means; at best it is a representative sampling, because the variety of these facilities is huge.
