The First limited supply of these long awaited turnouts arrived at Electric Modelworks today. Each one includes a nice cast brass manual switchstand. The turnouts employ a microswitch and wiring for power routing for those on track power. The power routing hardware is covered by a shield and the throwbar is very robust. Very fine balleast will be able to find its way into the throwbar tray,likely unavoidable outdors. The frog is metal-blackened- and the stock rails are nicely machined with a portion of the web foot removed for points clearance and a very fine notch cut into the rail head for the points to tuck in. Probably worth the thre year wait.
