Laramie Turntable


The Laramie turntable was a part of the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) shops built in Laramie for repairing, servicing and re-routing engines. There were 14 bays where engines could pull in for servicing. There was also a singular rotating turntable that was moved by manpower to turn the engines around.

Having UPPR repair shops in Laramie contributed greatly to the growth of the town.
