      Great build Joe.  It rivals the oil rig and that is saying something .

      Your turntable came out great Joe.  When will we see photos of it in place and spinning?

       

      I think you were smart to make it a gallows type because the engine will be protected better when hanging at the edge of your RR.

      And remember, boys and girls, turntables are more fun with your friends along for the ride,

      No easy task to place the express train steam locomotive A 3/5 # 705 on the turntable in Etzwilen (turntable diameter 16.5 m, wheel base A 3/5 with tender 15.45 m)...

      Hence the name "Armstrong Turntable".
