Hi Michael, 
If your are into turntables, try this re-gauged one



A little closer



and its parentage



3'6" gauge tracks in the deck and 2'gauge on the deck - It is a long way from "home"

Very neat!  Thanks for the photos!  It almost looks like it's sitting in someone's backyard.

That turntable would be simple to make, and could be placed almost anywhere to turn short critters.

I feel a new project coming on.

Looks like a sector plate.  I thought only model railroaders made those.

Can't tell for sure if it's narrow gauge or standard but I like it.  Takes up much less room than a switch (turnout).

Where was this taken?

It looks like it might be part of the Panama Canal.  It uses locomotives to pull the ships through the locks.

This setup is used at both ends of the Gatun locks of the Panama Canal at the end of the central pier.
