EBT heraldInspection Pit

Photo of Inspection Pit
Mile Mark: 11.00
Elevation: 630'
Date: unknown

This concrete pit is used to inspect in-service locomotives out of the Roundhouse. One end has concrete steps to provide access. Along the pit the rail is affixed to the concrete wall of the pit since there are no ties across its top.

It is still used from time to time, most often to inspect and lubricate the chain axle connectors on the EBT's diesel locomotives.
