I have not been happy with the performance of turnout #2. Although similar to #1, it has a curved frog which caused me to have to rework it. I am also re-considering the use of manual throws for the turnouts; I am concerned about not being able to reach them when the tracks are full with cars (the layout is at chest-level). I am thinking about going back to Tortoise switch machines.

I do not use Google's "free" service to track visitors on this web site. Additionally, you can now browse a secure version of this web site for complete and total privacy by using the version.

This week I completed the installation of the frog rails for turnout #3, which is part of the crossover with turnout #2 (shown partially assembled above it). Status: 9'1" of functional track.
