I remember there was a US road which had to jack up the last tender axle,
of a certain locomotive type, so it would be possible to turn them. 

And, if you check the NYC Niagara types with "Centipede" Tenders, 
they look "wrong" due to the rear overhang ...

Guess why ?

I like this photo of No.8 on your 'Lazy Susan' turntable ...  :mex:

It seems to keep getting a little bit more sand ...

... & growing a few more weeds.  :slow:

Can't help but judging from the engineer's right eye,

he seemingly had a close encounter of the first kind.

These turning mechanisms are also very good for complete turntable fiddle yards.

Here my train-turntable for the Gn15 fleet of the Kreatifmeile.
