I am doing a mod to my layout adding two new track sections and where I want them to go I need to fit two new turnouts, on my lay out all my turnouts are electro frog but the ones I need to use seem to be only available in insufrog Peco ST-245, they will be fitted to the front of the lay out so are will move the points by hand where as all my others are switched from a mimic board, is there a way to make them as reliable as the electrofrogs or do I except that the 08's will probably stall at slow...

So real life has been throwing it's usual curveballs.

June Objectives:

Reverse siding

Posted 23-03-2018 at 01:11 PM by Mike1943
Hi

I want to turn engines round and return them to the same track pointing in the opposite direction, further down the line and do not have room for a turntable.

My idea is to leave the track, via a point in reverse and then go through a 'Y' point and into a siding. The other exit from the siding will flow back to the track via another point, thus achieving the turning of the engine. The carriages of my train will be left between the 2 sets of points which will mean...
