  • HOn3 stub switch

    Hi,

    here are 2 pictures of my stub switch (build by my brother), which is the "starting point" of my layout.

        Hi Tombanjo,

        the switch stand is a Kemtron plastic kit, which I bought on ebay.

            Your brother built a nice looking switch. It's also very nicely weathered and ballasted.

                Some mighty fine looking track work. Now how do you convince him to help with all the track?

                    Good looking switch.

                    Can anyone tell me where and what time periods these types of switches were used? I looks like these types of switches would be easier to hand lay.

                        Hi Rick,

                        the Rio Grande Southern used stub switches until their end in 1953. I think for secondary tracks you can use them also in later periods.

                            Neat Stub Switch NG_fan, did he glue down the track as I can't see any spikes? Or was it soldered to PC ties? Love that Kemtron Harp Switchstand anybody know if Hatch or someone makes an available one? Sure beats the Caboose Industries ground throw for looks, does it operate the switch as well as look so good? Wish my brother could build like that!
