Thanks for making such a great product.
Can't say enough good words about your cedar ties. As mentioned, here are a few pix of my dual gauge track.
The pointless switch where the narrow gauge departs from the standard gauge is 2 years old, sees constant San Diego sun,
and as you can see is none-the-worse for wear.
|FYI, the rail is Llagas Creek code 250 aluminum and the spikes are Micro Engineering "Large Spikes".
The frogs and points are put together with JB Weld. Yep, good old JB Weld that you can get from Home Depot or any auto parts
store. The stuff holds up as well as soldering if you properly prep the parts by cleaning and roughing the surfaces.
I decided to try alternatives to nickel silver because of the cost, color difference between aluminum and NS, and the ease of
which you can tool aluminum. Again, after 2 years, the older switches are working as well as the day they were built.
