I have received the etches from my design for a 65/55ft GWR Turntable bridge, in Nickel Silver. This will enable me to have more control over the sourcing of the necessary parts. Initially the etches are in 4mm scale.
Available to special order only, as a set of etchings. The bridge is based on the version of the 65ft extension to a 55ft one, so that will allow me to make both. If you are interested in this or a 7mm version please let me know as I have just completed the design ready for PPD.
7mm scale scratchbuilt GWR 65ft Turntable in WR guise. I have now sourced some double sided copperclad in a size suitable, though for 70ft turntables I am still looking. The Main parts of the Bridge are Copperclad sheet.
Wheels and centre bearings are Ball Bearings for ease of rotation.
Track electrical pickup is from the circle rail and centre axle. This requires polarity reversal but does mean that any sound equipped loco will continue uninterrupted.
I will now be shortly proceeding with the etchings for 7mm scale.
Probably Cowans Sheldon and Ransome & Rapier ones to follow in due course.
