Turntable and modular roundhouse on CUUSOO

Created by Rasmus Fachmann. Very nice. Matt Sailors built a wonderful turntable, and I know he's working on a bigger one. I wonder how similar the solutions here are? Fachmann used an M-Motor and controls track lineup by running slowly enough that the operator can stop it. ISTR that Matt used a servo motor.

The modular design of the roundhouse is prototypical. I like it!

But I'd build it in Dark Red, not Red :)

I love that design.  I've been attempting to build a roundhouse for years, but I always end up scrapping it.  My last version was in dark-tan.  Seeing this one, I'm inspired to give it another shot.

Matt says no, he didn't use a servo motor - he also used the prototypical "It runs slow, so position it by eye" system.
