Title: Turntable
Post by: dsg778899 on November 09, 2009, 06:09:15 PM
 I have a question about the new Tidmouth Sheds with manually operated turntable. Its product code 45236
I was wondering if it needed any special wiring to use it with DCC
I hope that someone can help me with this question or let me know where I can find more information on this.
Thanks

Depending on how the access tracks are wired, there's a potential for polarity reversal as the table rotates. So I would think some type of Auto Reverse Module, such as those used on reverse loops, would be needed between the table track and any feeder tracks.

Thanks for the information Len. I have been waiting for a turntable that would fit with the EZ track system I was trying to find out if the turntable with need  any special wiring and if it does, will it show how to wire it and what parts it will need to do this
