Mark: Some where in the $270 range. Just remember this is manual switch. Powered ones run almost $500. If you add up the fprice of 5 wide radius switches at $55 apiece comes to $275 so it worked out just fine. and takes less space and gives you longer tracks. Later RJD
I have run it, the mechanism is smooth and runs on 22 vdc (I tried it on 12v, just ran slower), nicely geared down, and indexes perfectly... I'm very pleased with the construction. (Of course Axel never imports junk!)
I will get better pictures, but I needed to control remotely... will keep 5 trains at the ready, and I have cameras covering the railroad, so I can pull the trains out remotely (this will go in the garage).
When you think about how much 4 SS switches cost (with electric switch motors), and how much linear space they use up, then $500 is a reasonable price to have it all compact, and all that extra space.
Ok here are a few pics close up for the manual switch. Ha Greg is slower than I am. I'd like to see the detail end of the motorized version.
You can see the black slider in between the rails one with the rectangle knob. Slide it to make contact with the shart rails to keep the tracks lined up. This photo shows it in place to hold the alignment.
Slider being moved to hold alignment of the rails. Now it's your turn Greg. Later RJD
