    Nice 2-10-2s!!! How long is that turntable, about 110'? Is it a Diamond Scale model or a custom job?

    The turntable is nominally 90', and was built from a block of wood with some girders from an Atlas bridge glued to the sides. The bridge deck is Kappler stripwood applied over a piece of flex track, with handrail stanchions from an Athearn diesel. It's an Armstrong-type (more correctly "finger-strong") ;) with "optical" indexing. :-D
