I built this from a MetalSmiths 0 Gauge 70ft Ransome & Rapier Turntable, being incorporated into an 0 Gauge Layout. Motorisation is from a geared 12v dc motor rated at 2 rpm. In this case control will be by a  DCC decoder, the rest of the layout is also be DCC controlled by NCE Power Procab 5amp system. To ensure the correct polarity of the turntable track, a Tam Valley Dual Frog Juicer is used.

Programmable Stepper Motor control can also be used to power Turntables, where a method of indexing the turntable is required.

Scratchbuilt ex GWR 65 turntable
