Reply to "Atlas Switches for reversing loops"

Atlas Switches.  Using a regular atlas switch motor you can put insulated piece of track 1 or 2 inches long to the switch motor.  When the train hits the insulated section of track it will throw the switch.  If you go over 2 inches  you can not leave a car or engine on the insulated piece of track because it will keep power to the motor and burn up the switch motor.  That is why you only use 1 or 2 inches of insulated track.

If you need atlas track or switches I have some for sale on the For Sale Section of the Forum.  If you have any questions you can email at slewis74@austin.rr.com
