    Good for the budget minded hobbyist

    The switch machine feels flimsy, the switch points aren't that great, but I gave the product 5 stars because I haven't had any derailments and my railroad is starting to take shape. It's a great switch for the budget minded hobbyist who can't afford $25 for PECO switches, plus the electric switch machine, plus all the extra bits to wire all that together.

    Nice quality

    Typical atlas quality. Purchased as spares to install as replacements when one of these powered switches fails. I operate a large layout with 35 atlas code 83 powered switches of various descriptions In use. I find atlas code 83 to be inexpensive, reliable and readily available. I also find the switch motor seldom fails, which is why I buy manual switches as spares. Recommended.
