The website is currently being updated, so that we can include the information and ordering details for the new "PRESTO" tm, Smart Push Button Switch Motor Controller for our rapidly growing Prototypically Operations Oriented Turnout Control System.
The Mole II is the new even more shallow depth, easy mounting MOLE, with a new ,Precision Rotating Switch Stand Option. See the new help video for the Mole II under the information menu.
The new way of making curved turnouts of any radius that you need to fit your particular layout plan is here! Click here to find out all about it.
Do you have what is probably the most common type of frog in US Railroad Yards - in your model yards?
We can help! Now you can have far more realistic Switching and Operations on your layout.
Click on the model frog to go directly to the page for our unique "Ultimate" tm "88-Safe" tm model "Yard Frog" tm and our other far more realistic model frog types. And remember, our "88-Safe" tm technology means that you can run the popular but narrower code 88 wheels safely and smoothly on regular NMRA HO standard track work.
