English: View of Susquehanna Repair Shops, Main & Drinker Streets, Susquehanna Depot, Pennsylvania. Built 1864-66 by the Erie Railway (later the Erie Railroad).

View looking west; the Susquehanna River is on the right. To the left of the water tower are the carpentry and paint shops (1866). To their left, fronting Main Street, is the locomotive repair shop (1866); converted to paint shop in 1929. The larger building beyond the repair shop is the locomotive erecting shop ("long shop")(1866); converted to a coach shop in 1929. At the far end of the long shop, extending across to the right towards the main tracks, are the 1865 boiler shop, the 1900 boiler shop addition, and the 1865 blacksmith shop; all three of these buildings burned in 1975.

The original roundhouse (1864) was located at the far end of the site; demolished 1929. All of the shops were closed by 1960; demolished 1982. Cropped photo.
