Remarks & Notes 
Trackside Treasure: Portage Flyer passengers focus their attention on the train as they stretch their legs on the station platform in the background while we focus ours on this odd little home-built turntable at the east end of the line. It was built around an old salvaged swing-bearing from a Cat excavator, as was its partner at the western terminus. They are only used during steam season in July and August, as the diesel is a bit too long and heavy for this one in particular, which can be a bit of a bear for two people to push by hand, even with the little tea-kettle on it.
