Quorn & Woodhouse Station - turntable
The newly installed, manually operated 60' turntable. This allows locomotives to be turned not only as a public spectacle but to help even the wear on the tyres and wheel flanges. This was a gala day and the turntable saw several demonstrations, including one after dark.
