I want to thank Andy Reichert of Proto:87 Stores for his generous offer to help sponsor the Switch-Works “Ultimate Turnout” Clinic. Andy is lending us a pair of Switch-Works turnout building fixtures and supplying us with kits to build ten “Ultimate” turnouts. There will HO Scale kits in code 55,70,&83, with an assortment of frogs (bolted rail,rail bound manganese and self guarded).
The clinic is 1 hour long. Registered attendees will have a chance to build a turnout. Since supplies are limited in addition to registering for the meet, please pre-register for this clinic by emailing me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to reserve a turnout for you to work on. If you are building a turnout, bring some rail nippers, an HO track gauge, a file and a small pair of tweezers.
Don’t worry if you’ve never built a turnout before, if you can glue things in to a template, you can build these great looking turnouts. I look forward to seeing you there.
