To the group,
I have been looking at some of the turntables on the market these days, and am not sure which is closest to american prototypical ones. My friend and I had the Arnold Turntable installed on our old layout, and will be installed on the new one within a month or so (need to get it figured with the entry tracks from our engine service facility and switchyard.
Atlas... too few tracks, totally non-prototypical... I have heard some bad things about the Walthers turntable, since it can supposedly become slightly slanted so the tracks do not match up quite right. The Arnold is a high quality model, but the 250 bucks retail is a little bit steep, if I were to spend that much, I'd rather go with a transfer table with 50 bucks more and look a little bit more modern like I'm modeling. There are a few others that I'm not real sure of right off the top of my head, but I would certainly appreciate any recommendations on which to use/buy (and don't let price range be a guideline) on my layout.
Thanks in advance
