1:1 Turnout

Not a model…..

I took this picture earlier this summer when my wife and I went for a hot air balloon ride. We passed directly over top of this turnout (switch), and was able to get a unique look at it. It is surprising how much it looks like a model, even the proportions. I would guess this is likely a #8 or smaller. It is at one end of a run-around track. For the locals, it runs parallel to Webster Rd., between Manitou and Wilson Ave. in Kitchener.
