- Sep 3, 2004Hi all,
I have had the pleasure of seeing Dominique's diorama and he has made a
convert of me.
Once you take the "knife" to those black boxes...you will never look
back. If you hesitate, practice on some abused turnouts with burned out
The difference is dramatic. It is a pity that Märklin doesn't just sell
the basic turnout without the box.

Karp's website: how to remove Marklin Turnouts
I've done the same on the small diorama on which I'm
working, and it's an easy operation. And the look is
very, very better: the only heck with these modified
turnouts is tie spacing not matching US prototype, but
with this it's the same than Marklin / Peco track, and
curved rails beyond frog on diverging track (as it is
straight on prototype). But anyway like this they have
a fair looking.
Of course it's a little expensive as you have to
replace the original mechanism with a Tortoise or sthg
like this, but it's worth to do it.
