Remarks & Notes 
There are very few Class Ones that still have a working roundhouse and turntable anymore which is one thing (among many) that makes Seattle's rail scene special. But at the north end of BNSF's Balmer Yard is the ex GN Interbay Roundhouse. Here a 45 year old switcher sits on the turntable. In the background sharp eyes will spot even older power - long retired and stored ex GN SD9s.

In rail terminology, a railway turntable or wheelhouse is a device for turning railway rolling stock, usually locomotives, so that they can be moved back in the direction from which they came. If I run into a transfer table, that might get included.
