Roundhouse Flooring Completed!

If you have visited prior postings of my ambition to add flooring, here is a photo of the final result! If you have not seen the build up, my research showed that roundhouses at this  time did have wood flooring. I thank the folks at the Savannah RR Museum for their assistance. After many hours of fitting the scribed siding, I am pleased to show its completion...

Above you can see two tracks with pits installed. Of course these were to conduct maintenance on the under belly of the locomotives. 
There is one photo of the Georgia roundhouse, below, revealing that each track had a maintenance pit. I considered reproducing this element... until I did one and immediately did a 180 on that decision. Hence, I did only two to simply offer the idea as to how these would have looked.
