For some reason, this turning arrangement was popular in Italy; this example is at a place called Carbonia Cl, Italy.

I have to admit, the time it would take to turn a locomotive on this, plus the cost of the trackwork involved (which includes four turnouts and four diamonds), would make a turntable an attractive option, even with the cost of maintaining the table.
