Notes
  • Significance: The Repair Shops in Washington were constructed by the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad in 1889, and were a large installation for their day. The original complex consisted of a roundhouse, machine shop, erecting shop, tin, copper, and pipe shop, boiler shop, planing mil, passenger car shop, paint shop, steel car shop, and freight car shop. Located midway between Cincinnati and St. Louis, the building provided facilities for major repair work as well as for construction of new equipment. In the 1890's, the shops passed along with the rest of the railroad into the hands of the Baltimore and Ohio. In recent years, most of the shop buildings have been owned by the U.S. Railway Equipment Company which still uses them for railroad equipment work.
