Problems with track can take some of the fun out of train operation and identifying trouble spots can be difficult without the proper equipment. Our Track Inspection Car makes the job easy. The crystal clear floor of the car gives you the best view of the movement of wheelsets through switches and crossings, around curves, and at rail joints. You can quickly detect the location of kinks, bumps, dips and roughness which can hamper the smooth operation of your trains. Trouble spots can be repaired, then re-checked with the car to assure smooth operation and give more operating satisfaction. Assembles easily in a few minutes. Includes trucks, hardware and instructions.

82824 COUPLER GAUGE FOR HO STANDARD GAUGE

Coupler Gauge Prevents Derailments and False Uncoupling of Model Trains.
Improperly mounted couplers wreak havoc on a model railroad. The slightest dip in the track can cause cars with mis-aligned couplers to part, causing run-away trains or stranded cars. Coupler trip pins that hang too low snag track components and cause derailments; pins that are too high will not uncouple properly over track magnets. Our easy-to-use machined aluminum Coupler Gauge checks coupler and trip pin height for conformance to published standards, eliminating the annoyance and embarrassment of derailments and parted trains. Works with all brands of HO standard gauge couplers and Bachmann On30 couplers.

83443 On30 FLEX TRACK (6 PIECES)

With Realistic Appearance.
On30 trains operate on track that is equivalent to HO gauge, but standard HO track just doesn't look right in O scale...the ties are too small and spaced too close together. Our On30 track solves that problem by using ties of correct size (scale 6-1/4 inches wide x 5 inches thick x 72 inches long) and spacing (scale 21 inches) for O scale 30 inch narrow gauge. And the code 83 nickel-silver rail (.083 inch high) is just right for scale appearance and good electrical contact. Supplied as a bundle of 6 curvable 36 inch-long pieces. Made by Micro Engineering Co.

83201 SWITCH TENDER SWITCH MACHINE

Slow-Motion Switch Machine is Quiet, Dependable and Easy to Install.
You're crouching down, watching your train slowly gliding towards the junction. Suddenly, you hear a loud THUNK and see ballast flying as the switch is thrown. Then your train derails as it passes by an ugly, black switch machine mounted next to the track. The realism has been spoiled and you feel disgusted. You need to upgrade your switch machines to the Switch Tender, the finest switch machine available today. The Switch Tender, mounted under the layout, uses a quiet, slow motion 12v DC gearmotor and a simple, easy-to-install linkage to gently throw the switch. The cycle takes a realistic 1 second from start-to-finish, and the points are held in positive contact with the running rails, preventing derailments while maintaining electrical continuity. The power to the low current motor is on constantly, so your panel lights and track signals can be wired to the switch machine toggle switch, eliminating special wiring! The Switch Tender is so easy to install, you'll have your whole layout upgraded in no time. Designed for use with all scales of model trains.
Switch Tender includes motor, mounting bracket, linkage for before or after track installation, hardware, wiring diagrams and instructions. Overall height: 2.200 inches (55.88mm). Overall length: 2.640 inches (67.06 mm). Overall width: 1.040 inches (26.42mm). Current draw at 12v DC: 0.025a while running; 0.060a when stalled.
The Switch Tender is completely DCC compatible. If your turnouts already route power to the frog through the points, do not use the extra contacts on the toggle switch to power the frog. If you have a very many Switch Tenders, use a power supply of sufficient power to handle the load: supply 1 amp for each 16 Switch Tenders.

83425 BLUE POINT SWITCH MACHINE TURNOUT CONTROLLER

The Ultimate Manual Turnout Control.
The Blue Point Switch Machine is easy to install and is actuated by a simple push rod to your layout's fascia. The adjustable throw rod holds the switch points in positive contact with the running rails to prevent derailments. A DPDT snap-action toggle switch inside the compact plastic housing changes electrical connections to the turnout frog to prevent stalling of locomotives. Wiring your layout is simplified, because no electrical power is required to throw the switch. For use with all track gauges N through O. Dimensions: 1-1/4 inches wide x 1-3/8 inches deep x 2-3/8 inches high. (Push rod not included.)
