Anyone Here Use Kato's N Scale DCC-Friendly Turntable?

I'm crazy, but I've been drawn to Kato's N scale DCC-friendly turntable. Has anyone here used it, or seen it in action?

If so, do you know how easy (or hard) it is to connect to a DCC power source.

Any other things I should be aware of?

Thanks.


Hmm... seems like a lot
of $$$ just to turn locos
at the end of their runs.
That's what hands are for...

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

It looks pretty cool, but keep in mind that it's only about 84' long, so larger steam won't fit.

I'm only running diesels, so it doesn't matter to me.


Hmm... I'm beginning to
think I don't matter to
Kiz anymore...

Wow, that was great! Thanks!


Hmm... Kiz won't let me
have a video camera. He's
afraid I'll spy on him...

Dee:  I'm sure you still matter to Kiz.  He still has you on his account, and seems to let you say whatever you want.

Hmm... yeah, I guess so.
He even fed me on time
