Finishing the Roundhouse Floors!

Click on each picture for a closer look!


In prior news items, we described the covering of the original floor with a new concrete cap to provide a base for the new Leon's store space. In the picture at the left above, we see this finished floor with a pattern of cuts in it to provide expansion joints to accommodate expansion and contraction of the floor. In the middle left picture we see the floor surface after being ground smooth. In the middle right picture, the floor has been further polished. In the right hand picture, note that some of the expansion joints have been carefully placed to follow the path of the rails to the roundhouse doors, a nice touch.
