Turntables are used to turn railway locomotives around so that they do not need to run backwards for significant distances. This is especially important for mainline steam locomotives as these were not designed to run 'backwards' at speed or for long periods of time.
SCRCA Location Type: Turntable
The following examples from the SCRCA Project database illustrate this location type. Locations are only displayed here if the site or structure has been assessed and if a default image is available. The locations are grouped by 'variant' (where appropriate), then sorted by Location ID.
- To view the full Location Summary for one of the sites or structures, click on the relevant location name / description.
- To view a larger version of one or more of the images in a slideshow format, click on one of the thumbnail images.
