Remote Switches
Posted by majnnj on Thursday, July 17, 2003 11:38 AM
Hello
I'm looking for large remote switches for my outdoor railroad
I've notice that LGB carries a R3 Curve (48" R)
I want to use Aristo-Craft Trains and Rails or USA
does anyone else carry large remote switches
thanks for your help

Hey Mike,

I have a number of Aristo-Craft switches that I power with compressed air. They work well and are reasonable in cost.

Best wishes,
Dave Wile

Hey Mike,

Here is the web address http://www.delaire.com/ for the Del Aire company which is located in Allentown, PA. I don't know where you live, but if it on the east coast, you will often find the owner of Del Aire at scale model train shows. His products are really good, and the compressed air mechanism does not rely on electrical contacts. I have only used Aristo-Craft track, so I do not know how they work with other brands. I have found Aristo-Craft track to be good quality at a good price. In past years, I have ordered it from Watts' Train Shop which can be found on the web at http://www.wattstrainshop.com/ . In the past, Watts have had good prices, but you can compare current prices for yourself if you check the ads in a current Garden Railways magazine.

Best wishes,
Dave Wile
