Not to sidetrack this post, but is it advised to build a round house with stall depths that match the diameter of the turntable?
Absolutely! No point in have a 34" long turntable bridge, capable of holding/turning articulated steam locomotives, with a roundhouse having only 24" deep stalls. Then on the other side of the coin, no sense in having a roundhouse with 36", or deeper stalls capable of holding large articulated locomotives, with a turntable of only, say 24".
