Add DCC and sound to a turntable
My HO scale Virginia & Western, featured in the May 2008 issue of Model Railroader, is complete. Of course, a model railroad is never really finished. With the major work done, I had time to focus on improving specific aspects of the layout. One of those projects was the turntable at Michaelson Yard on my freelanced layout. With a bit of work, I was able to turn this direct-current model into a smooth running, easy-to-index turntable with realistic electric motor sounds.
