I would suggest that be left out entirely as a consideration here.


I fully agree.

Here I disagree. I (and I'm sure plenty of others) have a lot of European stock (contemporary) that I'm not going to leave in a box forever because my layout has rail it won't run on.

So, it looks like it comes down to this.

If this is a commercial project (meant to make money), it is apparent that there are some equipment compatability problems with the smaller rail. If the project is to make money (generate the most sales), the choice is code 70 (or code 60 if the flanges clear, I have no experience with the code 60 rail).

If this is a cottage project, where the goal is provide a rail system which is as close to prototype rail as practically possible, the answer is code 55, with the understanding that 1) some wheel interference problems may exist if spikes are used and 2) the use of pc ties or glue would be required to eliminate the wheel interference problems.

And, for either to be successful, the rail system would be readily available in NA.

Great feedback people. Now, let's get down to it. Turnouts of the type pictured in the first topic post can go into production ASAP. That is what I am able to offer at this time. Hand laid quality, fully assembled, code 55, $35 each.

Time to weigh in, everybody!

I'd got for two each for sure, I'm probably still going to do Code 70 for the main but for branches or a small yard they'd be helpful!

I'm going to ignore the poll and go #6. The #8's are nice, but lack a certain practicality. Until I see some of these mainline/modular layouts out there... Hell, until I see any kind of layout out there.

Can you give me the geometry of the turnouts (angle, length, width)? I need to see how they'll fit into my rail plan before knowing how many of what I'll need. If they're drop ins for Tillig EW3s, that would make it easier.

^^^ Bit of a guess, but the turnout assembly would be about 8" long with a diverging route angle of 9.46 degrees. Roughly the same size as an EW3 except that the EW3 has a 12 degree angle. You could probably cut another inch off the length for a tighter installation.

For specifics about the standard to which the turnouts are to be built, check here: http://www.nmra.org/standards/sandrp/rp12_5.html
