Miller Tower Project

UPDATE: APRIL 22, 2020.. CSX's former B&O Miller Tower, which was retired from service in 2000, was moved to the roundhouse in Martinsburg over 19 years ago. The building was later put back together, placed upon a foundation, and it got a new roof. According to roundhouse management, their current priority in 2020 is to add restrooms to the roundhouse, but they have their intention of getting back to work on the tower itself to make it into a living-history display sometime this year. "It has been on the back burner for too long," the roundhouse manager wrote on April 22.


Miller Tower was reassembled November 20, 2005
