I was advised that there was a yard sale last week and that there would be a number of HO model railroad items there. All of the items had been bought i over five or six years and then building a layout was of no interest. Went to RC cars and trains.
I came across a half dozen Atlas Double Switches at a yard sale and have a question.
I was very surprised to see that there was a few train sets (five or six left ) all made by Athearn, a lot of Heljan building kits which were certainly priced to sell at $5 each.
These were a bit too European for my liking, although If I did not have the roundhouse I certainly would have bought the two stall train shed.
Quite a few premade tunnels and trees, I forgot how awful those things looked.
And the slip switches, they are in Atlas boxes and yet three are marked Shinohara, that certainly answered who made them.
Forgot to mention the switches were $10 each. in case anyone wondered.
Anyway, I have been planning to redo my main switching yard and these double slip switches certainly make layout out the yard very easy.
My question, why do I not see more layout using double slip switches?
