I think he's asking for a scale measurement. He asks for 110' turntable. Looks like he models in HO, so what does 12" translate to in full scale? Would it be 87' (1:87)?

ADDED: Doh! Old Hobo said it. Ignore me.

Thank you! I already have a 90 foot atlas manual turntable but looks like I’ll either be making my own or I will be buying the expensive 130’ Incase I decide I want to turn a big articulates at some point. Have a couple of them as well. Maybe tax time I’ll bite the bullet and just go for it

Have you considered how much room you need to make a 130' turntable work? IMHO you'll need about a 60" square-ish area for turntable, roundhouse and short lead tracks.
