The Kato Turntable has a nice smooth rotating bridge which securely lines up with the exit roads. To operate it you can either press the switch once to move to the next bay, or hold it across to continue to rotate the bed until you release the switch. The exit roads can be moved around the bed to suit your own positioning and are powered by the bridge itself which allows self isolating on the unused exit roads.

The bed of the turntable is 160mm long which is ideal for European, American or British modellers as you can fit a nice long diesel or tender engine on the bridge with room to spare.

The Turntable can also be used with DCC operation by using a few extra items and a few simple alterations. The best way to link the turntable to your DCC control is to connect the Table controller to the DCC system via the green controller socket. Once you have connected the Table controller you can then use the polarity switch to avoid short circuits, or you can use one of our DCC40 Auto Reverse Modules which would simplify the operation.

The shed areas will need to be powered from your main running track if you are using DCC as you will need to isolate the exit roads from the main turntable. Eight isolating rail joiners are supplied but more can be purchased if required, this will avoid the risk of short circuits.

A green to white connecting plug is supplied in the set but you will need to cut the white end off to connect it to your DCC module or main track.

Please note: That if you are using the polarity switch method on DCC, the switch will not guarantee the direction of the locomotive as this is controlled by the DCC controller and the DCC decoder.

1 review for 20-283 Turntable

  1. J.P. Manalo

    The Kato N-gauge turntable is easy to set-up, easy to use and is very reliable. As a component of the Kato Unitrack system, this turntable can be utilised reliably in both permanent layouts, and also in temporary tabletop (or tatami mat) track arrangements.

    The locking index system utilised by this turntable ensures that the moving turntable always lines up with the fixed tracks.

    The Kato turntable is suitable for N-gauge locomotives and rolling stock from all manufacturers.

    If you're looking for a turntable to use for your N-gauge railway, I highly recommend the Kato turntable!
