Excavator bearing for turntable.

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

... this odd little home-built turntable at the east end of the line. It was built around an old salvaged swing-bearing from a Cat excavator, as was its partner at the western terminus.

Awesome !!!!!!! Seems this could be done in our scale (s) with sealed bearing and add some "teeth" to the inside if you want that look
