Turnouts and double crossover

  • I have a question regarding turnout and double crossover.   If you take 4 (2 left / 2 right) turnouts and put them together can you create a double crossover?  I recently just got back into the hobby (HO scale) and a lot has changed since my childhood train.  I am looking at potential track layouts and I am pricing things and a double crossover is quite expensive.  I can get several turnouts for half of a double crossover. So looking at a cost advantage I was wondering if this was something I could do. 

    Probably wouldn’t operate as nice as double crossover.  Just looking at the cost at this point. 

    Thanks for everybody’s help

    You should really post in the Model Railroader forums. There are three. General, layouts and DCC.

    Some here only watch forums that interest them.


    If you ever fall over in public, pick yourself up and say “sorry it’s been a while since I inhabited a body.” And just walk away.
