That funny round thing is what we call a "turntable". Good to see a steam train in operation.

I guess that's why they play music when they use the turntable to turn the train around! :)

That is a beautiful old train! But wow at the black smoke. I love your 'bobble heads' title for the earlier post too.

Welcome to the CDP community! Your photos are fantastic and I will definitely be looking forward to more posts from you. Happy photoblogging!
