When space is a problem the prototype went to smaller shorter switches. The number 5 saves space but still allows passage of most diesels and freight cars. This switch can be useful as a "Y" switch component due to its flexible feature.
Self-gauging molded tie-plate detail for code 83, code 70, and some code 55 rail!
Special "Half-Tie" at ends for gluing strips end-to-end for long smooth runs!
Flexible connecting web at bottom of ties for realistic ballasting that allows surface wiring to slip under the rail foot for easy soldering and access which hides easily under ground cover and ballast!
Alignment Sights to aid in following curves along a centerline created by the model!
