Re: Lazy points

Lazy points sounds like the spring toggle style points as used at facing junctions on tramways   (NSW excepted). These points could be biased to spring back to the straight track (main line) after the wheels had passed through or to remain in the position they were last used.

 

At a double line facing junction as used on tramways, these points should be returned after use to the position of least confliction so that  if  a following tram over runs at  the junction, it will not be on a potentinal  collision course  .

That’s a spring point Stephen, it returns after the wheel set has passed through. A lazy point stays where it is pushed to.

Probably ones like the attached photo taken on the Groudle Glen line on the Isle of Man.  These are on the passing loop near the outer end of the line.
