Well my peco turntable and extra Ballast arrived today and I have a few days off, looks tomorrow I'll be fitting the turntable and then trying find a motor for it. I did see locomotech do ones with indexing. I need see if I can find some roundhouses for it.

It might be cheaper to build them yourself if you can. The only roundhouse I know of off the shelf is this one....

There may be others or kit build ones that i'm not aware of though.
Hope it helps
Thanks

Well I've put the turntable roughly the place I want it, hopefully get it installed tomorrow!

@glencairn well should keep me out of trouble for a bit! It's nice it's starting to look less like some random track on a board!

@end2end ahh awesome thanks, I'll check that out!

*edit well that made my account cry! I might look at making one..

After a brief look for "roundhouse" on ebay there are kits but for HO rather than 00. Walthers, Kirbi amongst others.
They are not too out of scale but you need to check the door height. Some other members might know of a proper 00 scale roundhouse kit that I didn't find.
Thanks

Hello,
Mike64 from this parish has a roundhouse on his card site, may be worth a look.
Regards
Stephen

Apparently my memory has been degraded - so i am not stupid after all - what a relief!

Well little bit of work today, finally wired up the track properly and installed the turntable, now just need to motorise and wire it up.
