Well I need some kinda of Track System that is where I am STumped at.any ideas ho too set it up.Thanks for teh 2 Replies.
Maybe by some tight radius N scale track and cut it so you just have a single rail going aorund the outside edge. Mount a couple wheels to your bridge and presto. Time to do a bit of head scratchin i suppose?

Sorry thats the best I can think of, I dont have a Turn Table so its kinda guess work from my end.
