Well Type Turntable kit is an easily assembled kit which makes a model of a Ransome & Rapier well type turntable, as supplied to many railways around the world. The kit contains detailed plastic mouldings, rail and electrical contacts. As supplied the deck is simply rotated by hand, but could be easily mechanised or motorised if preferred.
