Ever pick up something at a swap meet that only enlarges your already burdened work load?
Well I got this neat little rural coal trestle with no idea as to where it will go. It occurred to me to tie it onto one of my yet to be built towns, however there was no room for it or so I thought.
I thought to hang it off the edge of the curved benchwork but had the problem of the 144" radius mainline at that point and a need to only be able to use a wye turnout to git 'er done. The diverging leg had to be much sharper to clear a yard entrance below so where does one pick up a 60" X 144" unequal wye?
Soooo...I picked up the phone and called Brad Strong at Signature Switch. He says "no problem" give me a sketch.
Well, I scribbled two curved lines on an old brochure and he sends me this absolute perfect problem solver with color coded wire drops soldered on. When installed I will shoot another photo. This is what I just opened:
Just cannot express my appreciation enough for all the custom fitted turnouts Brad has built for me in the last six years. Thanks go out to Jim Allen for hooking us up.
Still working up the grade getting to this last town. Hope the undertaker can wait.
