Curved Crossover

This curved crossover is in the lead into hidden staging. It was completed in the run-up to the open house and I did not have time to make a post to this blog. The turnouts are scratch built except for using the Fast Tracks Stock-Aid tool for the stock rails and the Point Form tool for the point rails.

The curved turnouts were made with code 156 rail from the old Atlas O scale flex track as the flex track either side of these turnouts be will be the old Atlas. Since these turnouts will, eventually, be hidden, I did not use as many ties as I would have for a turnout out in the open for the sake of economy.

Here are two pictures of the completed crossover with track connected to it. One servo-motor switch machine which had to be placed above the sub road bed as the points were directly above a joist.
