Wabash & PRR shops in Ft. Wayne

Does anyone know the approx. dates when the Wabash and the PRR roundhouses and shops at Ft. Wayne stopped operating?

The Bicentennial Train's locomotive was repaired at the PRR roundhouse in 1976.

According to this book: http://alpl.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/ ... story+2005

The PRR erecting hall demolition began in September 1976, with everything cleared for the new post office by 1978.
