Recently made some progress on the bridge.  Still need to finish up the dolly trucks and the pit.  The turntable bridge is 55' in length and 15' wide.  Just the right size for our largest locomotive.

The turntable is finally finished and fully operational.  Time to start laying some track.

One more shot to show the belt drive underneath the turntable pit.

Hi Tom  :wave:


GREAT ! to see your turntable build documented here in the 'Technical' Forum !  :thumb:


All things 'track' are gradually being herded into the 'Technical' Forum.  :P

The idea being that track & turntables etc. are very much the same kinda builds ...

... but with different sized parts, from scale to scale ...  L:

... the ideas & building, being very much the same. 


I think your turntable & others in the 'Technical' Forum should inspire our viewers !  :)


Keep it TURNING !  :cool:


:moose:


Si.
