Hi,

I have an O gauge (32mm) Waverley point kit built up that I have just made operate using a TT300, so far so good. The issue is that in the "normal" or straight route the thin pcb type material used to anchor the switch blades deflects allowing the switch rail to twist slightly and results in a tip not as close to the rail as it could be!

So, I'd like to add a stretcher (if that's the word) to beef things up. I've been looking on the C&L site but they don't have pictures so it's difficult to see what's on offer.

I really need to be able to fit it in situ if I can as the point is now glued down :roll:

What's on offer, anyone got good links to images of the items in situ?

There are good pictures of the Ambis type about three quarters of the way down this page:

As far as I am aware the other type that C+L do is basically two pieces of wire joined by a length of PTFE tube.

Regards

Ah! old forum, I knew I'd seen something somewhere. Looks like an order to C&L soon, those fishplates look tasty too

Thanks!
