Rocklin's roundhouse was at the intersection of Front street and Rocklin Road. It opened in 1867 and included 25 service bays, a turntable, and an 8,000 square foot woodshed.
Fires crippled operations in 1869 and 1873, but the roundhouse operated continuously until 1908.
Remains of several service pits and the roundhouse's west facing
wall are still visible.
