Conclusion of building the turntable

 

Now that the layout is DCC controlled, Terry has engineered it so that the motor draws power from the DCC buss and Peter Broadhead (who is also a member of our group and DCC guru) has made up a unit to operate the turntable using the macro button on the handheld controller. This is a great improvement as it does away with extra powercords along the floor.
