Albert-I built a "jig" for both turntables' ring rails. Basically it was just a piece of rod that fit into the pivot with an arm attached with a small groove like a gauge so when I turned the jig around, I was able to line up where the rail went. I just bent the pit rail with my fingers to the approx. curve and then spiked it down on the small ties. Nothing special to it. The ring rails actually do keep the TT bridge from tilting when a loco goes on the table but there are no wheels involved. The bottom of the TT bridges are made of brass and that just slides around on top of the rail. I will try to get a photo of this posted. The "jig" is long gone...I used the pieces for something else. The turntables are manual and since there is no wiring, no special work is involved in the operation.        Woodie

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
