My 130' turntable at the Bombay yard became inoperable a while back, so I decided to replace it with a new one. It was a major task, as all tracks leading to it had to be removed and re-laid. I decided to add more storage track for locomotives on the shed. the first pictures is of what it looked before and the 2ndt one is what it became. I just finished the initial work.
