View of Kentville Roundhouse interior, photographed through an open door (above).  This is the best existing photograph of the roundhouse floor, clearly showing the rails embedded in the concrete floor of one of the roundhouse stalls.  Each stall was equipped with a similar set of rails, placed in a radial arrangement centered on the turntable pivot.
