Amtrak's Beech Grove Shops. Circa 1910.

Looks like a refurbishing shop, since the numbers on the various units are so widely spread out. I can only make out 96 and 319. Even though they appear very similar, there are noticeable design differences in each unit. Specifically the headlights, and the braces running from the main body down to the "bumper".
Wikipedia has some info...
So Amtrak owns the facility now but when the picture was taken it was owned by Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway!
Thanks for the Wiki link, it is so interesting.
My home town had a Boston and Maine roundhouse facility which I was always fascinated with, of course it was no longer functioning as a railroad facility,
but the turntable was still there.
Workers with the steam engine of the Civil War era USS Kearsage. 1861.
