Remarks & Notes 
Q372 with a single leader rushes by the Martinsburg, WV Station and Roundhouse Complex on Saturday, Sept 26, 2020. The platform on the east side of track one was just completed and this was a bucket list shot of mine when it was first announced a few years ago. Berkeley Hotel, the brick structure on the left dates to the railroad's arrival in 1842 & saw witness to the destruction of the the adjacent roundhouses by Stonewall Jackson in 1862. The B&O bought the building in 1866, expanded it, and used it as the station, eating house, telegraph office, and hotel. In 1877 the trainmen and enginemen here struck to protest wage cuts, starting the “Great Strike of 1877” nationwide. Railroad and military officials suppressed the strike here, using this building as headquarters.
