Turntables (36 tracks)

Friday 9 September 2011, by Philippe Buisset

All the versions of this article: [English] [français]

Some turntables allow to serve 36 ways, and not 48 as those that I have already modelled.

A friend of the forum, working on a map reproducing the depot of Chambéry, needs such a turntable (the ideal would be a length of 21 meters).

The modification of the config file of an existing turntable is not sufficient because it is also necessary to modify the angle of the tracks which is 10 ° instead of 7,5 ° for a turntable of 48 ways).

So, I have proposed him to model a turntable of 36 tracks (with a length of 24 meters in a first time).

For this new turntable, I also model a new cabin, similar to that of Chambéry.

3rd of june, 2011 : the first version of this turntable is online!

I’ve added some details inspired by the turntable of Chambéry, and I’ve removed the cupboard at the center of the turntable.

Of course, this turntable is not compatible with the type P roundhouse because the tracks are spaced out with angles of 10 degrees against 7,5 degrees for the type P roundhouse.
