14388RE: [FJGRailroad] Gloversville Turntable
- Feb 23, 2010Hello Saul, I can think of two reasons and one of them I believe is the correct one: there was a problem with the air motor or there was a problem with the bearing. It was moved as late as 1961 when old coach 16 was hauled out of the south roundhouse (IIRC they had to bull it). At some point, later fifties IIRC, the lead track was realigned to meet the middle stall of the north engine house across the table where I believe the 202 was kept.
Following the destruction of the snow plow the need to use the three turntables no longer existed.

Why was the Gloversville turntable abandoned when there was still usefulness? It's not like it was a high maintenance asset and it could have supported the weight of the S-2 switchers.Saul
