Description
3 GWR & British turntable animated scenery assets with a selection of engines to populate them. For scenery only, do not expect it to function as a real turntable in the game, that is impossible. The preset animation will slowly rotate the selected engine around and then back to the original position over about 12 minutes. Trains cannot drive onto or through the asset versions.

The 3 turntables are also available as Cargo Station versions (without engines or animation) and can be used as a destination in a route like a normal station (but will not transfer cargo). Trains can drive through or onto the turntable via the 2 preset connections (indicated by switch boxes next to the track).

Both versions have the choice of the the number of Connecting Tracks, which normal tracks will snap to the ends of.

The options can be changed after the turntable is placed (click on it, then the Upgrade button). If lots of tracks are connected this will prevent the upgrade, delete the ones highlighted red until the game allows it. The Asset version cannot be upgraded to the Station version or viceversa, they must be deleted and replaced manually.

This turntable mod does not contain the files for engines (to reduce size etc), instead it will load them from the engine mods if they are installed (and their load order is after this mod). If it cannot find the engine files, it will fall back to it's own dummy files which prevents a file-not-found crash, in this case no engine is shown on the turntable. So it is safe to add or remove engines used by the turntable at any time (provided they are not in use elsewhere by the game). And you don't need to install all the engine mods if you don't want to use them on the turntable. The turntable can be removed from the game, if all turntables are deleted, without affecting the engine mods it can use. This also means if more engines are added to this mod in the future, they will automatically appear in the lists of any existing turntables.

IMPORTANT :- You must load this turntable mod before the engine mods, otherwise they are not show when selected ! (See the screenshot above for how to do this.)

Examples of some the turntables can be seen in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luRIgvPHt6U

This mod utilises base game textures and the LNER A3 & A4 engines, all credit for these is to Urban Games.

The operating concept for the station version is based on the ZigZag Staion mod, credit to the original author: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=806578620
(The mod not is required to for this one to operate, but they should not conflict if both are used.)

If you want a turntable with built-in roundhouse depots, see this mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=965941365

I love the GWR, my favorite British railway. Thanks so much for this!

Thanks, works fine.

Thanks for the answer JK. I knew how to move a mod to the beginning or the end of the list, but I really wanted to move it to an arbitrary position in the list, namely right before all your engines. I ended up moving all your engines to the end of the list, after this mod.

@azmicomico - See the last screenshot. On the Load screen, once you enable this mod (so the icon goes green), click the load order number to the right and 4 arrow buttons will appear, click the top double arrow to move it to the top of the list.

Any good way to move a mod ~300 positions up in the mod list?

another beautiful mod. thank you @JK

@Learn_to_play_tw - The mod was updated, to v1.282, this morning to correct that. Steam should automatically download the updated version. But the game needs to be closed it to update and other Steam settings can also prevent it downloading. If it still does auto update you could try unsubscribing, restarting Steam and re-subscribing.

@CSI Ren Höek - If you can let me know what the error message was, I should hopefully be able to fix it.
