An Altoona locomotive shop recently replaced an iconic piece of equipment.

Norfolk Southern crews recently installed a 110-ton turntable at the Juniata shops.

It's a new version of a now rare mechanism.

The turntable at the railroader’s museum was installed in 2006 and gives visitors a glimpse into Altoona's history.

The new turntable has a 400-ton capacity.

Officials hope it will assist in engine maintenance for the foreseeable future.
