Ransomes & Rapier Standard Well-Type Turntable

This kit is based on the standard design of well turntable supplied to railway companies world-wide by the Ipswich based company Ransomes & Rapier from the 1930s. The model depicts the hand-propelled version, and is available in two sizes, 60 foot (18,3metre) and 70 foot (21,3metre) diameter.

Construction is of brass, nickel-silver, copperclad laminate board and steel. Timber is supplied for the walkway planking. The stiffening angles, which are used to brace the main side frames, walkway supports, frame stretchers and deck chequerplating are supplied as nickel-silver etchings. Builder's and load restriction plates are also included.

Setting bars 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. This rail is included in the Installation Kit (see TIM3 kits).                                                                                                                                                 Models and photo by John C Smith from his layout North Foreland
