A Bowser turntable is made of 1/2" plywood with a brass pit wall, the wood is painted gray; the pit rail is installed and the wiring done. The center shaft , bearings and bogies are installed on the wooden bridge beam. Track and is NOT included. The bridge will accept any type of track you like. A turntable requires a square hole 2" larger than the bridge length and at least 6" of clearance under the layout. The motor requires and N or HO transformer (only controls the rotation of bridge) to move the bridge clockwise or counterclockwise. When the bridge is stopped it is locked in place. You can move the bridge very slowly. This allows you to align the track for the loco to pull onto the bridge. An automatic indexing system (stop at the next track automatically) is made by Dallee Electronic. The Dallee unit stops the bridge at each track without you having to align it. The Dallee Indexer is mounted under the layout and can be installed after the turntable is in your layout without having to tear it apart .
