Turntable and Roundhouse

"I like the choice of paint colours on the round house. And the mortar lines are very realistic."

New Cooper & Sawyer

I've started the first module for the new C&S. It came about as a result of building the pre-production 3 stall roundhouse for Schomberg Scale Models, needing a base to display that on and work out the details for laying the roundhouse tracks, etc. which resulted in the need for a turntable. Ended up scratch-building one after deciding the new Peco one was too large and expensive. Started with headphone jacks as the pivot/electrical pickups, but these things are now made so cheaply, they won't support a table, let alone a loco, so some machining was in order. The pit was fabricated using 10 inch embroidery hoops. I'll post some photos soon.

Have you seen the turntable idea in CRM i'm going to try it.
And a question what is the best material to use as a wall in the train room . In the past i've used plywood, veneer board and plaster board . This time i can't deside as i want to curve the corners.
