Re: Best ho switches


Yes. But they with not hold non Peco switches in position. You can mount them apart from a Peco switch.

The old Peco turnout motors with twin coils, when attached to Peco turnouts, had to be excavated.  They were directly attached to the bottom of the turnouts.  And the rod to extend the motor into a left/right switch had a very high rate of failure.

Thanks Bernie, I have quiet a number of them (attached to some nice Peco's I bought used), but I have not tried using them yet. In a cursory look I was wondering if they good be made to work if unhooked from their turnouts as designed.. Brian
