In addition to the P type roundhouse, I’ve modelled a 27 meter turntable, which accompanied this beautiful building.
I don’t have many documentation, so I’ve based my works on the observation of the old Jouef turntable that I’ve retrieved from my former model railway
I’ve also used the plan which has been published in the special issue n° 17 of Loco Revue, what allowed me in particular to refine the profile of the central pivot
I’ve almost ended the application of textures for the turntable and the pit.
The Beta 1 release is online (in complement with the modules of the type P roundhouse).
A variant of the turntable which finds the color it had during the works (see the screenshots already shown in this article)
There were too 24 m turntables. This size was demanded by some friends of the forums! Here it’s on-line, in 2 versions (as the 27 m turntable): grey pit and brown pit (hard-packed surface)!
The track of the different module and turntable is a FMA track created by Vendel, which can be uploaded from the DLS. Its name is FMA Rail-only track 20m straight - KUID:149987:38999;
I aim to create soon a special track for these objects, in order to avoid external dependences
