The crossing frog comes as a pre-made casting that simply locates into holes on the base - all the hard work is done for you!
The left hand crossing angle at the frog is 1in7, the right hand 1in6.
PLEASE NOTE: Other items are required to complete! You will need:
• A 25w Soldering Iron with 2mm Chisel Tip
for filing switch blades and cleaning up rail ends
NOTE: This is a kit that must be assembled and NOT a finished 'ready to lay' turnout. Other components are needed to complete (see above).
A Switch Blade Filing & Soldering Jig (link above) is needed to filing the switch blades and solder the switch blade to the chair plate.
Only recently released models with finer wheels and flanges (models released in the last 10 years) will run on this fine code 40 track system. It is designed to accept stock with a back to back of 7.4mm.
Older rolling stock may need wheels replacing with newer, finer equivalents.
