Does anyone know if the C&NW roundhouse and turntable are still standing in Escanaba, MI?  There were also 2 roundhouses without turntables back-to-back just West-Northwest of the C&NW roundhouse.  Are those also there?

I'd say there's a good chance the 2 roundhouses in Wells (just northwest of Escanaba) are still standing. I found them in Google Earth with an image copyright of 2007. The turntable appears to be intact in Escanaba, but the roundhouse isn't in the photo.
