Planned visual elements for Sunset Hill’s Illiana Train Society “Bull Moose Line”

#6 

The Turntable






The rail yard will be the transportation hub of the "Bull Moose Line" and the focal point of any rail yard is the turntable. A railway turntable or wheelhouse is the device used for turning locomotives so that they can move back into the direction from which they came or be relocated to another track.








Fully functional, the "Bull Moose Line" turntable will allow engines to move from the engine house onto the turntable to connect with a designated side track in the rail yard that connects to a main line track and back again This activity may be set-up as a hands-on interactive for ITS train garden visitors to activate.
