Sunset Hill’s Illiana Train Society “Bull Moose Line" Railway Garden Visual Elements

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 w hich 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 I T S train garden visitors to activate. A Name Change               To more closely identify with the move to the Sunset Hill Farm County Park the membership of the  Society voted to change their name to “Sunset Hill’s Illiana Train Society" * Sunset Hill's Illiana Train Society Relocation  Committee Lance Molenda
