Jose, that COULD be an original Ephiram Shay loco...looks like it could be and he lived in Harbor Springs...one thing, his "Baby"-the first Shay loco was built way back in the 1880's I believe...CHECK THE FACTS! But that little tender with a pair of geared trucks is certainly cool as homemade s$%t !

Here, have a couple more (may or may mot be the same loco):

Harbor Springs Railroad “Hemlock Limited” sightseeing train, Harbor Springs, Michigan, circa 1902-12. Ephraim Shay, the inventor of the Shay locomotive, lived in Harbor Springs, Michigan, and founded the Harbor Springs Railroad:

My natural modesty prevents me from bragging about it...

If your line doesn't have a double-ended railbus ... Get a turntable !



It doesn't have to be HUGE !

It doesn't even have rails, the bus rides on a strip welded on top of the I beams!.

That's about as simple as you can get for a turntable design.

How about an event oddity - no, I did not look through 22 pages to see if it might already have been posted.
"The aftermath of a boiler explosion near Oslo Norway, 1893. One locomotive was thrown into the air and landed on the roof of another; the crews of both escaped without injury[1]"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiler_explosion
footnote 1 goes to period documentation here

If you scroll down a bit, there's a nice picture of a pole road loco
and for those who want to stick by their Märklin, albeit with a solid 3rd rail
