I’ve recently been asked by a follower some questions concerning two code 100 switches used on the layout with transition rail joiners. These switches are both curved switches I had to use to get the track plan to line up properly.
The switches I used had to have been Peco, as the points snap shut when thrown. I originally thought I used Walther’s, but Shinohara switches don’t have this feature. The two switches in question are these shown below:
In the left photo above, the code 100 switch is just out of view to the left, that connects the yard lead with the limestone ballasted main. In the right photo above the second code 100 switch is just in front of the locomotive where the passing siding starts.
