    forget it

    Yeah - that's what I thought. Just not worth all that for me right now, so if I need that loco turned around I'm going to have that giant hand appear from the sky :eek: and pick the loco up like it's a toy.

    I'll bet those little people will all end up with solid styrene bricks in their pants at the sight of it!

    Have you considered a wye in lieu of a turntable. I think that is what I'm going to do. It still requires that you wire for a reverse loop, but that should be no big deal. Space is more of a consideration though.

    no reverse anything

    not interested in reversing - just wanted to use one for a multi-bay engine house and to split to a second yard.

    I'm using wyes already into the existing spurs to the factory, packaging distribution buildings. Feel free to check it out via the link in the sig.

    Hey Bob, what you asking for your turntable? I know that they are pretty pricey. You know how it is working on a limited railroad budget!!:eek:
