Title: New Bachmann Turntable
Post by: sonnyw on May 27, 2015, 11:22:08 PM
Anybody tried out the new Bachmann turntable? From the pictures it looks like a sd70 might not fit but gp40s and such would work fine. Im impressed with the detail you get for the money.

An SD70 is a bit over 70-feet (I want to say 73) long. That works out to just over 5.25" in N-scale. The bridge on the turntable is 5.5", so - in theory - an SD70 should fit on the table -- remember, it's the distance between the outermost wheels that count, not coupler to coupler length.
