I am looking into upgrading the switches in the backyard. I have done research on Llagas Creek, Sunset Valley, and Switchcrafters. Switchcrafters is a new company and one of their turnouts is reviewed in the most recent Garden Railways. It seems like they are pretty good for the money, does anyone have expierience with them? If so, how do they compare with Llagas Creek/SVRR products.

I have one of the Switchcrafters units in service.
It is, well, different.
The rail bends for throwing rather than pivoting points, the Veranda plastic-wood ties seem to be working well.
The spikes are not stainless, nor mandel-bent under the ties as are Llagas.
The only real issue you might have is that the ties are Micro-Engineering height.
If you are laying on a hard, flat surface, there is a small height difference at the railhead.
I know he was looking into having thinner ties available.
