Weekly Photo Challenge: Corner

Roundhouse Park, Toronto

Roundhouse Park, Toronto. May 2017

How do trains turn corners?  They use a turntable!  This is a turntable at Roundhouse Park, a park in downtown Toronto in the former Railway Lands where there is a roundhouse and railway museum.

Sometimes when you face a corner, all you have to do is move in a circle to the opposite direction and keep moving!  Life lessons perhaps? ;P

    Erm, no. Trains turn corners gently: more of a bend really. Turntables are for locomotives, originally built for a single direction of travel – forwards. So they had to be turned around ( a 180º) to go back. Much less wasteful of space than a “wye” (Y) which was actually a delta (Δ). Or to feed a roundhouse (as here). So not a corner at all. But I still like the picture. Our roundhouse in Vancouver got rebuilt into community centre, but at least they kept the turntable.

      Ah, thanks! So it should be re-addressed for locomotives then. The way I interpreted “corners” is for turning regardless — this is how locomotives turn a corner.
