I need two Wye's to finish the last part of my railroad.

Can anyone tell me where I can buy them?  

Aristo does not make them

Parker apparently does not make them.

I thought LGB made them but I cannot find them listed anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

John

Most of us just work around what is available.  I use three LGB 1600-series turnouts.  It does skew the architecture somewhat though.

If the above doesn't work, then Outback says they make a Wye:

And Old Pullman says they make a 3 way:
3 way

I am trying to find Eldorado Railways but every time I try I get this site about Calvin Klein jeans, etc.

Where can I find information about Outback Turnouts?

Like a website, hopefully.

I thought it was NGRail but that does not work.

LGB does make a 3 way Y (12360) but is R1 (2 foot radius/4 foot diameter). Good for all LGB rolling stock, not for those other mfg large cars/engines.

Id made my Wye out of two 10 foot diameter Aristo switches and a 4 foot diameter switch. I had to use one small piece of 4 food iameter track to make it all fit but at least my Shay will go through it with out problems.

Some of the 1:20 box cars don't like it too much but if I go slow they seem to make it most of the time.
