"A transfer table, also called a traverser (especially in the U.K.), is a piece of railroad equipment. It is similar in function to a turntable, though it cannot be used to turn equipment around. The table consists of a single length of track which can be moved from side to side, in a direction perpendicular to the track. There are often multiple tracks on one side of the table and a single track on the other."
Onto my description of the table:
This transfer table can hold the Emerald Night, and can be modified to have more than 2 tracks, and become longer for larger engines. (Anyone with as train longer than four tracks is going to need to extend this table!) As a bonus, my updated Emerald Night with 7 wide tender is included with the LXF download.
The whole model.
The overhead shot unfortunalty doesn't show the engine on the table. A flaw in LDD won't led me put anything directly on the light grey tracks.
This was the best I could do without cheating. The back wheels are still on the dark grey tracks, so it will connect, but not any further than where it is in this picture.
This picture shows what the transfer table was designed to do: Connect with my shed. The shed will be finished soon, so keep an eye out!

Comments, questions & etc. weclome!
EDIT August 1st 2012
The RR shed is here:
This shed is missing 1 part... 38 of the Window 1 x 4 x 5 (Old Light Grey). The piece is strangely not in LDD, but the glass is... so this is technically not finished yet. (I've also inlcuded two extra glass pieces just so you have more than enough in case I miscounted the window holes.)
The rear is cool too, but it look better with windows.
The rear of the building give 2 extra studs so the tracks don't stick out the end of the wall.
The Emerald Night (and / or my many MOD's) fits perfectley. However, You may be asking, why is it so tall with all that extra space? My Reason: What if you had a very tall locomotive, or even one with pantographs (like on an eletric engine)? That space works perfectley then. If you think it looks wierd, the change it. The LXf is right here, after all.
