I just took delivery of 5 new SwitchCrafters #10 switches. Two right, two left, and one Y. I am very pleased with the craftsmanship and the look of the finial product.
I found their web site easy to use and ordered from it. They even accept PayPal!! I received a personal e-mail shortly after from Bruce confirming the order, giving me an approximate completion date, and instructing me on how to use their web site to check my place in the order queue.
Like all hand crafted products in this hobby I ordered well in advance of when I would need them. I don’t expect to put these into service until mid summer of 2009. The target completion date was three months out and there was a little slippage but with the web site I could track my order without needing to correspond through other means.
Here are photos of the #10 Y with code 250 aluminum rails:
These are nicely built switchs, one of the club members had 2 #8s built by Bruce for track power and they have a micro switch built into the frog for polarity, i think he paid about 130.00 a piece for brass track powered switchs. i want him to buld me 4 # 12s so my bigboy will run nicely thru them. but i need SS so i have to send bruce the rail so he can make them...he seems to be a class act.. the switchs are really nicely made.
