Folsom Railroad Turntable (Dusk) - Old Town Folsom - California

This is the railroad turntable in Historic Old Folsom, California. It is a reconstruction of the center-bearing, A-frame "gallows" type structure which was the second of two turntables that were established circa 1854-1867 at this very site. Local legend boasts that the turntable was so well balanced that it only took one person to turn the locomotives.
