... but some have regretted that later, with l o n g e r l o c o m o t i v e s .
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 ?
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.

I solved my need for a Gn15 turntable by converting an Atlas N scale unit. I mounted a piece of PECO HOn30 track to the turntable. I soldered wire to connect the rails and covered the platform with wood. Easy to wire and self indexing. This is an interesting thread. Thanks, Michael. Regards, Dave L.
