ATSF 912 Editors Pick!        
The roundhouse and turntable combination was railroadings unique solution to servicing steam locomotives in a relatively small area. Even a large roundhouse, such as this example at Santa Fe Railways San Bernardino, California, yard was an efficient use of space. By the time of this photo in April 1961, steam was gone and was replaced with diesels. But the roundhouse and turntable was still in service. (Exact date unknown.)
