I meant the term "slim" as a contrast to the "standard" geometry.
Of course, the geometry for the modell track system is compressed in comparison to the prototype. I know that the standard 40-km/h-switches have an angle of only 12.5°. But the modell 15° geometry is used although as "standard" by most modell railroaders. Only few have enough space or are keen enough on prototypicality that they use the 12° switches as "standard". And those few are the ones who need 24° crossings.

I said, I thought that 24° switches would sell. But I didn't say that because I think that there were enough modell railroaders who want 12° as a "standard". I said it because there are many railroaders who don't care of prototypicality, at all.

Any idea as to if Kuehn will make a crossing?

He hasn't announced any crossing. And I don't asked him for this. :(

Some time ago Krueger / TT-model announced the crossing. It must be compatible with Kuehn, but as I know, for today it is not available. Maybe you can find it somewhere - on Ebay or in some hobby shops.

Even if Kuehn does not make a crossing, I will simply alter track plans to avoid the use of crossings.

I guess that was a stupid question.

Or you can simply adopt the Tillig crossing.

Too late, I have already made the modifications to the layout design to rid myself of the one crossing on the layout.

Hi guys,

Kuehn will make a crossing, but not in 2018 and I do not know when. But first the NMRA #6 switch, this should be available the first quarter in 2018.

Ciao,
Rob

Does anyone know the rough dimensions of the Kuehn start set of track?
