The turntable is designed for sunken installation on a layout baseboard. It has 8 spoke tracks on the outer edge of the turntable pit. It can be expanded to 24 spoke tracks with the 89971 edge segments that can be snapped onto the turntable pit.
The turntable has extensive detailing and prototypical paintwork. The model has been technically reworked and has been given new colors compared to older versions. It is operated by remote control using a controller included with it. It has a 5-pole electric motor for a drive mechanism. There is automatic shutoff of power to all tracks not lined up and in contact with the turntable deck.
A Z power pack is included for a finer feel in operating locomotives onto the turntable and from the turntable to the stall tracks, as well as in the entire railroad maintenance facility area. The necessary power supply is also included.
External turntable diameter 170 mm / 6-11/16". Deck length 132 mm / 5-3/16". The diameter of the opening required for installation on a baseboard is 145 mm / 5-11/16". The installation depth when the wires are connected directly to the turntable is approximately 30 mm / 1-3/16". When plugs are used with the wires, the depth is approximately 50 mm / 2".
Also included are 2 each 3-stall roundhouses (dimensions of each: width in the rear 200 mm / 7-7/8", width in the front 100 mm / 3-15/16", length 140 mm / 5-1/2", height approximately 50 mm / 2") which can be converted to 6-stall locomotive sheds. Also included is a model of a building for the management of a railroad maintenance facility (dimensions: length 185 mm / 7-1/4", width 45 mm / 1-3/4", height approximately 54 mm / 2-1/8").
