    Hi...90' scales out to about 12-1/4". The largest loco I have (Mountain 4-8-2) will barely fit...The couplers overhang the bridge. If I ever get anything larger, it will require a five-digital turnntable....

    That's a cool link Roger! Those DD 8 axle units are gigantic! Yep, sure looks like most other locomotives would fit on that 90 ft. table.
