PLEASE NOTE!!! This Easy Build kit has gone through a design change and upgrade!
This easy build turnout kit has gone through a design change and now includes a new plastic sleeper base with all the chairs already pre installed! No sprues or individual chairs that need cutting off and inserting into the base one by one - a massive time saver!
This kit also now uses 'All Rail' instead of a casting for the crossing frog. As such, a 'cast crossing frog' is not longer provided and has now been replaced with pre-machined V's that simply slide into the base. This results is far better looking track and smooth running of trains.
Another change is that the switch blades are now soldered 'in situ' by the kit builder. They still come pre machined, however.
