Been to downtown Folsom? If so, you’ve probably seen the city’s fancy train turntable.
Galt resident Al Baldwin believes that city has one, too, and that it needs to be saved before officials seal it forever with asphalt. The site at the end of B Street is set to become a parking lot as the Old Town area is redeveloped.
