Large forty-four-light, steel sash windows serve as walls in this two-story building set north of the engine house. Like many of the other buildings in the yards, the paint shop has a long rectangular plan (45 by 210 feet). Its function required a great deal of natural light; to supplement daylight from the window walls, a gable-roofed clerestory with thirty-two-light steel sashes rises above the standing-seam, metal-clad roof. Because of the structural weakness of the windowed walls and years of neglect, the building has become dangerously unstable. The museum is slowly restoring it.
