Looks like they copied the idea of our model T railcar's built in turntable, based on just before 2 minutes into the video!

Neat video -- thanks for posting the link Wayne.

Very interesting but, to me, it illustrates the wonderful value of preservation with integrity, as practiced at the WW&F.

Thanks, Wayne. Very entertaining. Got a kick out of the uniforms and white gloves, too.
