Looks like a model positioned in front of a background to make it look real.

Anyway, while I started strolling through pictures of train turntables, I cam across this one.

Seems like this would happen fairly frequently. A train entering the turn table when it wasn't lined up.

I had my doubts, too. Mine were caused by this guy (picture right):

Looks like he's on a little pedestal, like the little fake guys in ppls' model train set-ups. Idk.

It just looks wrong to me. The angle looking at the building is lower than the angle looking at the background.

Plus, I'm no train expert, but it looks like that building and the trains are brand new, but I don't think they use turn tables much any more. Just for the tourists in San Francisco. Plus every track has a gleaming train on it. It just screams posed model to me.

Walt Disney lied, it's not a small world after all. It's big and all sorts of things are changing while we're struggling with life.

Yeah, like any hobby it has it's own language. Like listening to a politician, it's as clear as mud but it covers the ground.

It's amazing how the mighty railroads lost their grip, not just from the greedy barons sucking off funds, but the way they operated.

Because all the US railroads interconnected the equipment had to compatible, so most of the rolling stock looked the same. But the Track Inspection Engines was the one area they varied widely. Often the TI Engines owned by the same company were varied.
