Just found another nice example of all wooden rails with an iron turntable-cum-turnout. Note the angle-iron inner lining.

The accompanying illustration shows an oil burning steam locomotive which has a number of features which adapt it particularly to sugar plantation work. One of these is the fewness of working parts, ...http://www.gearedsteam.com/bell/articles/an_oil_burning_locomotive/an_oil_burning_locomotive.htm
This information was transcribed from the article entitled "An Oil Burning Locomotive" that appeared on page 158 of the April, 1914 issue of Sugar.

Believe that's a Baldwin cast iron table.

Looks like that turntable has seen better days.  Still it shouldn't be too hard to build a reasonable copy in almost any scale.  Should at least provide some inspiration.

The V&T has always been a favorite of mine.  Been to Virginia City (the real Virginia City...not what you've seen on Bonanza) a number of times.

The Ma and Pa had a similar design turntable at Delta, PA. It was usable into the mid-'60's at least since I shot a pic of a steam fan trip loco on it in that time period.
