Turntable demo

How do you turn a locomotive around? Find out in this eye-opening talk, then see our impressive turntable in action.

Be amazed as you see several tons of rolling stock moved smoothly around in a perfect circle by our operating turntable. Our Explainers reveal the mechanics that make it work and its uses in the railway world.
