Description

HTML is disabled for this item description.Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
For your consideration is a custom made transfer table that the late great Harry Roberts of Odessa, Delaware made for me.  He delivered it to me at the O Scale National Convention in Dearborn, MI in 1990.  It is in like new condition as you can see.  I never got around to putting any of the storage tracks on the sides of the pit.  There are two approach tracks in the one PIC so that I could run an engine on the table.  The transfer table is new and only test run on 12 volt DC power.  I have removed the table from my bench work as I am converting the layout to G Scale.  

The table pit is 29" wide and 48" long.  The transfer table pit could always be shortened down from the 48” dimension.  The bridge is also 29" long and will handle an O Scale 98' UP Centennial with plenty of room left over.  You could put two GP's or two SD's on this with no problem.  This is the only 116 scale foot transfer table he ever built.  He did build a few 90' tables but I wanted one long enough to run a Centennial on.  The transfer table is currently set up for 2 rail operation but it is easily converted to 3 rail if so desired.  

The transfer table has 2 rail O Scale track on it now, as made.  This can be converted over to O Scale Three rail by changing out the rails.  If you send me the track I will make that conversion for you.  Also, because this transfer table is large it can also be converted over to G Scale operation.  I have G Scale code 332 and I believe code 250 track that I would make this conversion for you.  

The transfer table has an electronic indexing system that I have never installed on the table.  With the indexing you can select the track you want the table to seek out and it will go to that track with the push of a button.  It has a 12 volt DC Pittman motor gear head drive and a heavy duty chain drive.  I have all of the original paper work to go with this. The transfer table will have to be shipped in a separate box as will the transfer table pit itself and the electronics in a third box.  The transfer table pit will be shipped via Fed Ex ground.   I can give you a shipping estimate with your USA zip code.  I paid Harry $4,000.00 for this custom built transfer table and delivered to me in Dearborn, MI.  I want $2,500.00 for this complete accessory.  If you have any further interest in this let me know.  Thanks, Terry Paige, Flint, MI.
