Wow, I wished those Millhouse turntables had been available when I built my layout, 1999-2002, if I were younger (now 76+) I would have definitely bought the 34 inch model. It’s a super fantastic Turntable. I have the Bowser 32 inch model, but replaced the thin shaft with a really rigid one, and a PTC 3 indexer. Please post pictures as you make up your turntable and switch yard area. Congratulations. Happy Railroading Everyone

Larry i jusy put a pic up of my progress so far^^^^

The tough part is building the tower (takes three hands and fast glue), followed closely by the programming of whisker track stops. Instructions may be perfectly clear to somebody, but it took me a couple of weeks and lots of telephone help by Alan Zamorski to get mine nailed down. It's great fun and a show piece when done.

I didn’t do the programming.. I got a DC Transformer that Alan suggested .. it’s smooth and will be easier for me and my grandson .. yes the detail parts look like it will take some doing

Using CA glue and a CA accelerator (like zipkicker) helps.
