I am returning to having a home layout after many years of club membership and find myself in the market for a HO turntable. My last turntable was a Fleischmann, an excellent bit of kit and that is my benchmark. Why oh why did I give it away.
I'm looking for reviews or insights on the (90ft) Anton's Trains turntable.
Are they any good, how do they handle DCC, what's the operating mechanism like including the indexing and motor noise, is it easy to add additional roads.
Happy to read whatever you have got as I'm not finding much info online.
Thanks for your help.
My first TT purchase was an Antons 120ft version, reason it was only one that could turn a garratt. Sorriest thing I ever did, the method of alignment consisted of a small drill bit and a bit of paper saying how far apart to drill the holes and, oh! there was a jig that was meant to set the position of where to drill the holes. In the end without going into the details, I sold it for a fraction of what I paid for it, but glad to see the end of it.
My next TT was a Walthers 90ft version, it looks much like a NSW TT, although I cut the cabin section off and had a cabin and extended entry scratched for it. Walthers now make a full DCC control 90 ft version, its not cheap but they often come on special so worth subscribing to them if you are interested.
I really cannot comment on the Antons TT's after the oversized garratt TT, which Anton thought he could capture the U.S market as well, but certainly not for NSW modellers.
