CTM Model Railway turntable motorizing and Indexing unit for N and HO scale including narrow gauges. Kit set version.

This version of the CTM turntable unit needs to be assembled. The pictures show a complete one I will change them tonight.

The kit version does not include the mains power supply however it is available for an additional $20.

This is not a difficult kit to build. All the parts are CNC machined or laser cut. All holes are drilled and where appropriate tapped. It screws together. However to build the controller and to wire up the turntable you will need to be able to solder. There are not delicate components so it is pretty straight forward. We can provide a soldered harness for the TT and a built up controller for an additional $25. The only tools needed are screwdrivers one large one small of both flat and cross head types, pliers and a soldering iron.

This is a brand new item manufactured by us here in the United States. This is a high quality CNC machined motorizing and indexing kit for model railway turntables. It is easy to install and can be supplied with a custom made bushing for any commercial or scratch built turntable. This was designed from the ground up and specifically for model railways.

It provides a smooth quiet drive with positive locking with exit tracks and dynamic braking. This does not use a stepper motor. The indexing works at the output end of unit not the input and therefore its accuracy is not affected by worn gears, missed steps or backlash.

See a video of it operating by clicking here

The unit is mounted under the turntable with four screws. It has a 4mm drive shaft which will match directly with any of the Peco Turntables.

It has 200 possible stopping positions that can be selected by the customer. Please note the turntable is not included. the turntable shown in the pictures is for illustration only. Indexing is via a stainless steel wedge shape cam that is spring loaded and falls into a slot in the steel indexing wheel activating a microswitch which cuts power and turns on dynamic braking. Pushing the start button activates a solenoid that pushes the cam out of the slot and starts the motor which has a precision gearbox with stainless steel gears. Selection of entry and exit tracks is made by removing a tab set at every 1.8 degrees.

We also have a crane motorization kit suitable for a variety of scales and models of crane. UK and EU buyers please note we have an England based distributor who will send the unit via Royal Shipping charges are $10 for the UK, other EU countries this cost may be slightly more depending on where it is being sent to. The rest of the world shipping is at actual cost.

This unit has full 1 year money back guarantee and we are happy to provide advice and assistance for installation. We can also supply a fully operating turntable to your specifications.

Chatham Toys and Models manufactures mechanisms and animation units for model railroads and fair grounds. We use high quality motors, ball races, stainless steel gears and CNC machined metal components - aluminum, brass, stainless steel, mild steel and drill rod are our usual stock. Our aim is to make solid, well built products using proven technology and good engineering practice. We use electronic controls where appropriate such as speed control, timers for cable cars and fairground rides but never to make up for any deficiency in the engineering.
