Dante Yard

Just for fun, we stopped at the old Dante Yard to check out the locomotive turntable that used to operate there.

This is it.  It’s a large circle and the interior part turns on a track.  The track in the area (which is no longer used) is dated 1927.  This whole complex must have been a happening place back in the day.  We’re going to do some investigating of other rail operations in this area, including numerous narrow-gauge lines that serviced both the coal mines and the timber industry.  Sounds like fun to me.
