Turntables can be found all over the Island of Sodor. They help engines and rolling stock in turning around in the opposite direction, the same way they came or another direction. They are primarily used by tender engines so that they can turn around the right direction of their train, as reversing at a high speed is dangerous for them. Tank engines, however, aren't required to use them as they have no trouble reversing at any rate at all.

James once spun around on a turntable at a fast pace due to the high winds, and some Troublesome Trucks once pushed Oliver down a turntable well. Gordon also had two mishaps with a turntable, one where he wasn't keeping his balance when he was in a bad mood and couldn't make it turn, and another where he moved forward in an attempt to jam it while it was turning, only to get himself stuck in a ditch.
