> Im wondering if you guys have any ideas or even examples of being able toTony, I'm not in the DCC business but a few years ago I began to start on a small module consisting of Peco flextrack as well as Marklin sectional track and turnouts (no MTL flextrack nor turnouts, nor Wright's turnouts at that time..).
> throw marklin swithches with slo-mo point motors
As I've always been upset with side mechanisms associated to turnouts I cut Marklin turnout's side mechanism following what is indicated on this page: http://www.zscale.org/articles/undertable.html .
I just took care not to cut the end of the point's arm in order to have a Tortoise rod passing through, coming from the Tortoise mechanism I used below. I obtained excellent operating results.
Hope this helps,
