Turntable II

I chose the Peco turntable due to Peco’s promise of a compatible turntable motor, which I’d read about a couple of years ago in a bulletin. Looking into that now, though, it appears that the motor hasn’t yet been released and I’m left wondering if it will be.

Edit: on July 30 I emailed Peco:

Hello,

In 2015 I was browsing a bulletin about up-and-coming products from Peco, and noted that there was a turntable motor in development. However, although the turntable motor was slated for a 2016 release, I’ve not seen nor heard of it since, save some third-party sites which claim that it is still in production. Is it? And if so, when is the anticipated release date?

I’m planning to use a stepper motor to power the turntable, for now, but I very much anticipate the day when a compact, working, fitting motor is released. Other commercial solutions are far too large and complicated.

Thank you for your time,

Aaron Mitton

Today I got this response:

Dear Mr Mitton,

Thank you for your email.

We are progressing with the turntable motor unit, and aim to have it available later this year.

Kind regards,
