Hello my friends, At the end of the year I would like to ask the experts assembled here for their knowledge. To use the car lock engine with Peco points is relatively easy, after switching these are held by the spring in position. The central locking drive does not do that. So now my question: If I use switches that do not have such a spring mechanism as this of Peco, how can I solve the problem, if I still want to use central locking drives? Space is available next to and under the switches in masses, so I am open to any solution that is simple and stable. For me, this is completely new territory, because indoor I have always used turnout drives in such cases, which take a stable position and thus compensate for the missing spring mechanism. The engines for use outside, however, are extremely expensive and for my high-speed switches I would also need two each. If you have the best suggestion, you may name an S-Bahn station on my layout for yourself or your place of residence or anything else you like.😉 And now I hope for many good ideas. Thomas
Hi I wonder if anyone could help ? I've just recently returned to the ""oo"" world after many years and thought it might be good to model a layout in my garden. I have the main track laid on boards along my fence with tables for the turn-around at each end. I have just invested in some Guagemaster point motors and have installed them under the boards to operate a couple of points that make up a passing loop. My question is does anybody know where to get something like a rubber gaiter to plug the hole but still let the point rod move? Any help would be most appreciated.....
