It is in the Bessemer engine yards.

Pics or any insights?

These were hard to find. They don't show the complete roundhouse but this is all I could find. [^]

I took some slides of the B&LE roundhouse in Greenville last year. As far as I know it is still standing. This could change quick since the CN takeover. To get to the roundhouse you have to park at a deadend street at the NS (ex Erie) mainline and walk along the NS main about 2 blocks and the B&LE engine terminal and roundhouse are right next to the NS main.
