    ng fan, nice work your brother did. Better then the ones I made. Maybe you could have him do a 'how to' for us?

    Two thumbs up.

    Very impressive! I too am modeling stubs on my civil war era layout. I would like to know your techniques. Can you offer some tips? Also the harps are beautiful. Do they throw the switch? Are they hooked to a machine? They look functional.

    Thanks.

    Thom

    Hi Peter,

    he promised to build also a 3 way stub - the other stuff I have to do on my own - it will be a challenge

    Hello PaulD,

    the rails are glued onto the wood ties. The switch stand isn't operating the switch (plastic!), but it's operated by the switch machine under the board.

    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!

    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.

    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.
