Product Description


Its Back!! A simple deck turntable for your On30 critters!!

Outer rim diameter is 128mm (5"), deck diameter is 4.5" (115mm), turntable rail length is 112mm (4.35")

On30, On3 are all standard  - please select gauge in the options (up to 22mm)

The turntable comes complete with a motor+planetary gearbox and additional nylon reduction gearing for smooth, slow and realistic operation. The high-torque motor only requires 1.5V so can be run from a single AA battery, or from DC voltage stepped down from the layout supply.

Operationally the turntable has sprung plunger contacts for reliable power-routing of the rails - a robust type used by the electronics industry.

The turntable features continuous power-routing (not a split ring design). for DC operation, polarity is changed with a DPDT switch (not included) for DCC a reversing module (or dual frog juicer) can be used to ensure continuous operation of a sound chip. wiring instructions and schematics are included in the instructions.

Code 83 or Code 100 options are available.  if you are using Peco's On30 track then you will find installation easier if you order code 100 to match, otherwise we recommend code 83 for a finer look that will work with all modern rolling stock.

Rail is pre-soldered assembly, and aligned into place as part of the design

The opional deck surface is laser-cut Basswood sheet representing approximately 9inch timbers in 1/48 scale. alternatively just leave it with an open frame. The pit has some clearance (about 1/8") to add debris under the rotating frame.

The turntable body components are laser-cut microply and laserply.

There are no printed instructions with the kit. pdf will be emailed when shipped. If you want to see them please contact me on sales@kitwoodhillmodels.com - no obligation - electrons are free :)



Simple, effective, reliable and affordable.
