Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway Roundhouse
La Rotonde de l'Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway
Cette imposante rotonde en brique de dix garages constitue un bel exemple de l'architecture industrielle à l'ère des trains à vapeur. Érigée en 1913 et possédant en annexe un atelier d'usinage, une chaudronnerie et une forge, elle fait partie d'un ensemble très bien conservé qui comprend des magasins et un atelier de réparation de wagons. Ce complexe a servi à l'Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway longtemps après l'avènement de la locomotive diesel en 1949 et le transfert des opérations a Nanaimo dans les années 1950. Le site demeure un témoin important
