I'm trying to determine if I have enough room to add a turntable, depth wise. I have a hidden area under where I would like the turntable to go and I want to make sure that it would not interfere when countersunk into the baseboard. And is it heavy? The baseboard in this area is 1 inch foam.

The turntable is not very heavy, but I would go to 12mm plywood.
The turntable usually also have an roundhouse where you store locomotives. Several locomotives close together maybe very heavy.
I wouldn't go to foam, but this is just my opinion and others here have more experience in layout buiilding (although I already have a small layout with a turntable).

Mostly Märklin H0.

Thanks. What is the approximate depth of your turntable?

The old turntable 7186 isn't sunken so it stays on the table.


The new one 7286 is sunken.

The C-Track one coming out late 2019 74861 doesn't have the metrics for its dimensions posted yet.

Just that the diameter of the recess is 278 mm, though not if that is the inside diameter or the outside diameter (size of hole you'd need to cut out).
Nothing on the depth of the recess.

Toys of tin and wood rule!

I was expecting to see a photo of the turntable from the toy fair but until now didn't see. Don't know if Märklin has a pre-production sample there.

Are we still without any information relating the dimensions of the 74861? I don't see them on the maerklin.de page.

Also, the layouts on pages 261-262 of the 2019/2020 general catalogue are completely unuseful. There is a components list but the drawings doesn't show where to place them.

Does anybody have more info?
