I do not own the Bachmann Tidmouth Sheds, but what sort of power function does the Turntable use? Does it have a lever of some sort to move it around, by hand?

Yes, there is a round green knob to turn the table by hand.

Does the round green knob feel cheap and nasty, and that it might break if you are not careful with it?

My local model store had a demonstration model out on display once, the man let me turn the knob and look it over as I was considering buying it at the time...then I realised I didn't quite have enough for it anyway, but the man was very kind. Anyway more to the point; the knob felt quite sturdy and didn't feel like it would brake off if treated with proper care.

OK, thanks for that Alex. I wouldn't mind a Bachman Tidmouth Sheds, but I didn't have the space for it, and I am not sure my OO Gauge Hornby Thomas & Friends Locomotives would fit in it anyway.

Considering that, from memory, the turntable is only just big enough for a Bachmann Spencer, I'd say so...but the sheds themselves really are quite nice...though granted I no longer have a layout and may not for a little while, so I have time to weigh up my choices, as I also own 2 A4's, an A1 and an A3, none of which would fit on the turntable...however to those who own no locks bigger than say...Bachmann Spencer, I highly recommend the sheds and turntable. Back to the actual topic at hand though, since this digression has strayed from the original purpose of the topic, after a quick Google search it seems that the Tidnouth Turntable is not able to be motorised...from what it would appear anyway, from memory though, Bachmann do produce a nigh-on identical Turntable that can be motorised in their regular HO range, from memory at least...I am happy to be corrected if that is wrong though.

In that case then, I would have to buy all the Bachmann Thomas Locomotives if I wanted to get Tidmouth Sheds. I do not want all of the Bachmann and Hornby Thomas Locomotives.
