We now produce drive systems to fit Kitwood Hill Model turntables. Simon from Kitwood Hill Models has developed an adaptor kit for easy installation.
Our base product for OO and N gauge indexing turntable is based on a 70 foot turntable. This product utilises the 'bridge' and 'well' from a commercially available product.
This product is supplied with bridge handrails and grids for the well. These are not fitted to prevent damage during transportation and to provide the option for customers to fit a more detailed handrail if preferred.
N gauge: Length 230mm / Width 165mm / Depth 110mm
(L9" x W6.5" x D5")
Bridge length - 151mm (6") - can accommodate locos such as the Dapol Britannia
Hole required 151mm (6 1/10")
OO gauge: Length 355mm / Width 330mm / Depth 125mm

Drive system - these are custom built with a variety of options available. Size is obviously dependent upon type of drive system required. However, in general

The Adaptor Ring Kit
We recommend, but it is not essential, an adaptor ring kit for either the OO or N gauge turntable units.The main advantages being it allows you to :
These consist of 2 pieces of CNC machine cut 12mm MDF.
To remove the turntable unit, you first have to disconnect the wires from the PCB under the turntable, then undo the wing nuts. The complete unit can then be safely removed from underneath without having to disrupt any of the track work.
Both versions have the facility to adjust the bridge rail height with the height of the tracks to achieve a smooth prototypical transition. This also allows for easy adjustments if tracks are laid on a cork base.
If purchased, instructions on how to fit the adaptor ring kit are provided.
PRICE: N gauge £50.00 plus P&P where appropriate (no change in price anticipated)
OO gauge £70.00 plus P&P where appropriate (no change in price anticipated)
