  • Large Diameter Turntable Well

    Monty Wells, Sid Stubbs, Norman Dale

    Compendium 2 (1994)



    Norman Dale, who submitted this article shortly before his death at the age of 78, needed a big turntable to cope with his 0-8-0 tender engines - so big, in fact, that the well was beyond is turning capacities. In typical style, he devised a hand-built well based on a small center made in his metal-working lathe and cut out using a simple radius cutter. We pass it on here for the wider benefit, with special thanks to Norman's good friend Sid Stubbs, for his help in preparing these notes, and to Monty Wells, for making the drawings from rough sketches.
