Product Description

MOTORISED O SCALE WAGON TURNTABLE KIT

for 7mm/ft O scale standard or broad gauge (or dual!)

With a diameter of 4.5" (115mm) this turntable will comfortably accommodate RCH1923 pattern wagons.

Rail length at 49.2mm broad gauge is 102mm

Features:

The turntable drive train is a 3rpm motor with further 4:1 steel gear reduction. at low voltages can really turn slowly for easy track alignment - so ne need for fancy indexing system. Can be bought "without motor and gears" for a £10 saving if you have another rotation method in mind.

the rails and deck are built onto a subdeck which hold the 4mm primary shaft with a milled brass T piece. She ain't slipping!

A PCB under the subdeck carries power to the rails using sprung plunger contacts - a robust type used by the electronics industry.

The turntable features continuous power-routing (not a split ring design). Polarity is changed with a DPDT switch for DC(or DCC) use, or a DCC reversing module can be used. the advantage of this for a wagon turntable are there is no dead zone angles - you can put entry/exit tracks at any angle.

The standard kit does not include track rails. There are so many options that it is easier for you to supply and fit your own. Soldering the rails is pretty simple for an Oscale modeller.

OPTION FOR 32mm GAUGE ONLY If you select the "ready soldered" option I will supply the track assembly with C&L Nickel Silver code 125 rail ready to drop into the subdeck.  If you are a broad gauge modeller then you have all the skills and gauges to DIY.

Obechi wooden deck planking has engraved planking (scale 8 inch planks) and bolt holes. Nothing looks like wood but wood!

 

Simple, effective, reliable, affordable.
