Reply to "where do insulating pins on O 22 ...O72 and O612 switches go"

Simply put, the control rails are positioned differently.

I could argue that the inside of the "v" control rails would be more natural so you wouldn't need take the extra step to cut the outside rail, but the O22 design goes back to their introduction in 1938. The precursor, the 011 switch also did the same. I'm guessing the Lionel engineer who made the design decision is unable to enlighten us a century later.
