Above board point motors
« on: July 10, 2018, 04:17:43 pm »
Hi guys.
Are there any polarity switch aboveboard point motors out there?
As am going to need some for the fiddle yard on my layout due to baseboard supports being in the way.
Im using code 55 electrofrogs

Thanks in advance
Thanks Chaps

Probably a few that can be used or adapted for above board instead of underneath if that's what you need. 

Off the top of my head, try searching for

Peco (mounted on their simple base plate with a microswitch or slide switch also fitted)
Conrad
the old H&M (I don't think the more recent Hattons clone includes a polarity switch?)
Fulgurex
Lemaco
... Others?


The Peco solution was my first thought, like this:
