L&N Turntable at Gentilly Yard

And there’s more of this 1960s tour: in this view we’ve moved a bit to the right.  The trio of GP30s and the lone F unit are sitting on the turntable lead.  The turntable is still in use (I even got to take a spin on it).  Just a tiny piece of the brick roundhouse can be seen at the extreme right edge.

L&N at Turntable, Gentilly Yard - Early 1960s

These photos were taken while I was on an impromptu guided tour by one of the switchmen who was taking a break while the crew was on the spot.  We walked through the entire service area, then through each of the units sitting on the turntable lead.  How often do railfans get a tour like this today?
