On Wednesday, June 1, 2016 there was a partial roof collapse of the shop portion of the old Bush Terminal engine-house.

Crews on the scene June 3, 2016 to demolish and stabilize what remains.

A few photos

Hopefully there was nothing of value kept inside of it.

Hasn't been used in years. Sad to see it crumbling away. That "RO" spraypaint marking on the outside of the enginehouse is 'Roof Open' - a warning for first responders. The roof has probably been leaking water for awhile - it is only a matter of time before the rest crumbles (unless some repair work is done).

The building was left to rot,most of the internal structure is compromised,might be a lost cause.
