Turntable pit
This is a concrete pit above the coal tracks which are now the roadway at the left. The pit has no space for storage tracks or roundhouse. The only access track was at the lower left of the photo.
The gray line through the trees on the left above the roadway is the mainline across the canal and river to Nesquehoning Junction and Jim Thorpe.
