    Examples of steam excursions that do (and do not) get turned...

    The South Simcoe Railway runs the entire train backward on the return trip. At least they did in the video I saw...

    The Wakefield Steam Train has a turntable and a runaround track, so the engine always faces forward, and is always at the front of the train.

    Neither railway turns the passenger cars.

    Just to add to the confusion :rolleyes: :D a "turn" is also the name for a local that goes "out-and-back" from a given point. It does not imply anything about the loco's direction or whether it is at the front or rear of the train.
