I was wondering if anyone has, or knows of any plans for an H frame gallows turntable. It can be plans for HO, I'll enlarge them.

Thanks for sharing my build thread Louis.
I think it would be rather easy to scratch build one.
My friend has remodeled a Walthers 90' turntable with a gallow superstructure to be used in On30.

Your welcome Michael, I've always wanted to build one like yours on top of my HO scale Atlas turntable deck. That looked fantastic, and seems rather easy to scratch build.

Robert. the 2010 On30 Annual has an article on building a gallows turntable.
It's an A frame version, but should give you some ideas.

Very nice Rob, PDF's and all. Blackie just has to change the Gallows to an "H" type frame.

All great suggestions, I have seen the HOn3 build many times, it's a great looking model.
I also have the On30 annual plans for the A frame one. I was thinking I can rework that one into an H frame. really I guess all the need are dimensions from center to center of the main vertical timbers, I was thinking that the A frame dimensions would work. I guess like everything I'm putting toooooooo much thought into this. I guess it's my 40+ years of mechanical designer and the fact that I'm anal Thank you guys I'll look at the On30 A frame once again, I'm sure it will work. Besides one of my rules on this railroad is NO NITPICKING, so who is to say that it won't be correct.

That's a real nice turntable.

As you think, so will you be.

Blackie,

If you look carefully at the drawings and photos of the h-frame turntable that Louis provided a link for, you could work out the spacing of the verticals from the overall length and the tie spacing.

Mike
