Southern Finley (Birmingham) Roundhouse : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I found (visited) the former Southern RWY. Finley Roundhouse in Birmingham last Monday and would like some information about this building. It is being used by a warehouse company and the NS still uses a spur on the back side of the roundhouse to spot cars for shipping. There is also a backshop being used by a steel company adjacent and to the West of the roundhouse. I'd like to know the usual stuff, when built, why built, how long used, when it was abandoned, etc. Pictures of the roundhouse can be seen on my website, Dale's Alabama Rail Pic's on the DEPOTS PAGE by visiting this URL:
