The Hornby R070 Electric Turntable is designed to operate with the Standard Train Controller R965.

Drive the locomotive onto the turntable, then switch the power from track to turntable via the 'on-on' lever switch R046 (supplied with the set).

Your speed controller now controls the rotation of the turntable. If you are using an HM2000 or HM4000 controller, then the turntable must be powered from the uncontrolled DC output with an R047 Lever Switch, 'on-off', NOT from the speed controller output.

The set includes eight access track sections and wiring. You can add and subtract access sections to suit your layout, up to a maximum of 14.

    Plan how to use this after your buy it

    Essentially this product is good and the idea of it on any size layout is great. However, if like me, you have designed your layout prior to purchasing this item, you may be challenged when you find that there is one "Inlet" track point that has to be utilised on the turntable to make it work. This point is near the motor housing, so in my case I've had to re-design how I use this item, as the entry point cannot be re-loacted and the motor hosuing is in a different place to where I had planned it to be.
