GWR Over-girder Turntable
This kit represents the GWR style of hand-operated over-girder turntable, 65ft. (19,8m.) in diameter. Its features include full rivet detail, inner and outer bracing struts with stiffening angles, timber walkways along the tops of the side girders, access ladders, locking levers, chequerplate decking etc.
Construction is of etched nickel-silver or brass, steel and copperclad laminate board.
Setting gauges are provided to ensure that the deck rails are positioned centrally, and the laying of the circular race rail on which the turntable rotates is simplified by the provision of a machined radius setting bar. The race rail is included in the Installation Kit (see TIM3 kits).
