i recently bought the bachmann ez-track turntable which has 20 degrees between the tracks. most every roundhouse i have seen as 10 degrees and a few 15. does anyone know where i an find a roundhouse to match the bachmann turntable? thanks in advance.

i do know about the thomas the tank tidmouth sheds, but they are just too juvenile.

I think the Thomas one is the only one out there that is a direct fit as far as alignment. I don't know about the juvenile part. Nothing says you can't customize it and make it your own. If I had it, I would do away with all of those white knob things sticking up and paint it. I think that would make a lot difference. Maybe different stacks and/or cupolas would help.

I think this one looks better than the other one since it is a different color.

Tidmouth shed is item #45236, but doesn't seem to be available at this time. There may be some online retailers who still have some in stock. Being based on the Thomas series, it has a European look to it, but a bit of 'kit bashing' and some paint can fix that.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

This is the link where I found the brown shed. Like Len said, they are out of stock there.  In looking around on line, I couldn't find either of them in stock anywhere. I imagine Bachmann discontinued them for now. Maybe if enough people showed interest, they would reissue them since they are the only ones that match up with the turntable. I thought it might give you an idea of what it could look like if you painted it a different color.
