Burnham, being closed by UP, once a very good shop for the Rio Grande, it kept the SP from going under by rebuilding all of the under-maintained SP SD40t-2s in the early 1990s, something like four a week for a while. I lived near there for 11 years, and actually worked at a Sears outlet store about 300 feet from it when I was a student. The city wants it out of there. As I recall the turntable was on the north side, near a redi-mix plant.

Does anyone else find it odd that the listing gives no details on the turntable, like its length? If it goes to a museum or tourist line please let me know, otherwise it is not of interest to me.

You must have missed the 2nd pic of the turntable. See the link above.
Working on a pc that I can't enlarge the jpg but looks like pretty complete drawings?

I zoomed in to 500% on the dimensions of the bridge but they're not absolutely clear
in that scan. It does have 3 numbers and looks like either 120 or 130 ft, but that's just a guess.
