Remarks & Notes 
Heave! EBT shop crew members lean hard on the push poles of the Orbisonia Turntable as they turn Mikado #15 to align her with the service track....and give us a rear-quarter view of their locomotive. The turntable seen here was designed as an air-powered machine, although in its current installation, it has always been turned by hand, using beefy push-poles. It was acquired second-hand from the New York Central Railroad and cut down to narrow gauge dimensions before being installed in the pit in Orbisonia.
