N Kato Unitrack - 20-283 - Electric Turntable

The turntable and the roundhouse are iconic railway structures, and at long last they are coming to the N Gauge Kato UNITRACK system! Featuring a modular design that allows the easy addition and movement of up to 36 tracks, a sophisticated dual-motor driven indexing system that guarantees proper alignment, and an easy to use Turntable power system that takes full advantage of the power routing functions of Kato UNITRACK so that you can move and park locomotives onto parking tracks or in a roundhouse with minimal additional wiring, the Kato N Gauge Modular Turntable is perfect for modelers looking to add something special to both their tabletop and their scenic layouts!

The Kato N Gauge Unitrack Turntable uses special fitted 10° track sections which can serve as powered parking tracks or can be substituted with dead end pieces. It's a "snap" to swap around and add additional tracks!

While the turntable is necessarily elevated because of the need for internal motors and other below-track equipment, thanks to clever engineering it is a mere 12mm (just under half an inch) from the base of the turntable to the top of the rails. By using the flexibility of Kato Unijoiners it is possible to connect the Turntable to a tabletop layout without the need to sink the turntable into foam.

Swapping or adding tracks is as easy as removing a screw - the modular design of the Unitrack Turntable is specifically tailored to allow modelers to easily change their Turntable layout without the need for any additional wiring or soldering - simply pop the screw cover off, unscrew the single screw holding the plate in place, and either exchange it for a blank section or one with tracks. The Turntable's indexing and power routing design will take care of the rest!

Features:

12mm thick, a mere 5mm taller than standard Unitrack.
Full 360 degree rotation takes approximately 1 minute, with the secondary motor smoothly and slowly moving the tracks into position when told to stop, giving it a realistic and smooth appearance in motion.
Fully Compatible with DCC power systems (Turntable will still require the included DC Turntable Controller to operate)
The 160mm (6.3”) bridge can incorporate most standard length locomotives and even locomotives as long as the EMD SD90/43MAC!

Note:  Kato's N Gauge Modular Turntable is available as a basic set with a number of add-on parts. It can be operated on its own with a single Kato Power Pack, but it is recommended that you use at least two Power Packs (one for the turntable and roundhouse area, one for your main line) so that you can independently operate the turntable without interrupting your mainline operations.
 

The Unitrack advantage:

Kato's line of ground level UNITRACK offers a variety of pieces and turnouts to allow you to build any layout your heart desires, all while ensuring track quality and steady delivery of electricity to your locomotives. Available both as individual pieces and as track sets, let Kato UNITRACK be the first track you put down, and you may never use another track again!

Track Laying Made Easy:

UNITRACK can be used in nearly any layout situation - large or small, permanent or temporary. UNITRACK can be the answer for the beginner looking for a trouble-free introduction into model railroading without the frustration and disappointment of rail and electrical problems. UNITRACK also meets the needs of advanced hobbyists, providing superior quality to an entire layout or the flexible solution to the ever-changing "staging yard."

Everything you need for a quality N layout

Now available in N scale: track packages designed to create a complete layout plan! Each boxed set contains packaged track assortments as well as layout drawings that will allow you to create the specified layout. Please note that these plan sets contain UNITRACK only and do not contain scenery or locomotives. Contact your local hobby store about purchasing these track layout sets

The start of a beautiful friendship

Every hobby begins with a single step; start off on the right foot with a Kato UNITRACK Starter Set! Each starter set comes with a complete oval of track, a Kato Power Pack, a locomotive, three cars, a re-railer, and an instruction book on how to assemble and care for your new Starter Set. From then on, the sky's the limit thanks to UNITRACK's modular snap-track design. Build a complex basement layout, or keep it simple so that you can take it out in evenings; anything is possible with UNITRACK!
