Re: Powering turnout points

Michael,

It might, but keep in mind that the wire must:
1) be of adequate size to carry the full current required by the least energy-friendly train you can think of, and
2) be very flexbile so as not to create problems throwing the turnout.
In summary: probably not, but worth a try if you think both items are covered.

I think I could solder a single strand of wire from the point to the closure rail it leads to to power the points. Wouldn’t that do it?  Pardon me if I used the wrong term there.
