        The B&O Railroad lost about half their property on the south side of Columbus Union Station to the Third Street Viaduct construction including their freight house. Since by 1959 steam was gone the old steam locomotive servicing facility along Fourth Street was torn down and a new smaller freight house constructed. A new locomotive service building for diesels was built at their yard near Port Columbus on the eastside.
