No turntable? No problem. WW&F Railcar RC4 brings her own turntable, and it only takes one crew member to jack her up, spin her and put her back on the rails.
Although most of Maine's 2-foot railroads had vehicles similar to RC4 for their track crews, only the WW&F had a car with a built-in turntable that allowed the crew to easily spin the car 180 degrees as needed, so that the crew was always facing forward. The turntable is located under the car and incorporates a jacking mechanism that is actuated using the same crank tool as the car's starter. The chassis is raised several inches above the railhead and is very precisely balanced on the turntable pad. It can then be rotated by one or more crewmembers as you see here, and lowered back on to the rails.
The car you see here is not the WW&F's original historic railcar nor is it really a replica. The Model T power plant and cowling are genuine Ford originals, but the chassis is a custom design that is based on the original with some modifications to permit its use as both an MOW vehicle and a railbus to transport museum patrons. In the summer months, RC4 is typically run behind the hourly steam trains as a second section, and museum patrons have the choice to either ride the train, or take the railcar....or better yet, buy a combo ticket and do both!
