This switch is furnished as a complete integral unit (including stub rails, curve bends and safety stop) which is ready to bolt onto your track system. It is a welded system made entirely of steel. A patented feature provides positive actuation of the double lift, accomplished through steel gears. The difficulty in assembly and installation of conventional slide and lift arrangements is eliminated. An outstanding advantage of this switch is the ease and simplicity with which it may be installed. Merely bolt in with three double-hole hangers, or if you prefer, weld into the track system. Installation can be accomplished in one-fourth the time as formerly since all fitting is eliminated. Track sections of switches are constructed of 1/2" x 2-1/2" steel. Switches can be furnished with a 45 degree (or other) bend instead of 90 degrees--when so ordered.
