Some words from Craig...


This is a modified Walther's HO scale 130' Turntable. I cut a new pit out of 1/2" MDF and screwed the existing pit to the bottom. Lined the pit wall with 0.040" Styrene and painted it concrete color. Installed a 1/2" MDF spacer on the top of the Turntable bridge. Scratch built a new bridge girder (one side) and made a mold of master of it, then cast new girders (for both sides) and installed on the sides of the existing bridge. And relocated the existing Indexing Control panel and transplanted direction buttons to the yard panel.
