7038Pneumatic turnout motors
- Nov 2, 2001Hi all,
I've been looking for an overly-complicated method of controlling all of
the turnouts on my layout from underneath the table
(http://www.zscale.org/articles/undertable.html), but I just can't get
excited about the standard solenoid mechanisms out there.
A review on page 23 of the November 2001 issue of Model Railroader of the
Del-Aire pneumatic switch machine system caught my eye
(http://www.delaire.com/). I'd be able to get prototypical speed in a
small space (unlike the large Tortoise mechanisms), extremely quiet
operation, built-in support for ladders and other complicated routes, and
best of all, it would be really cool. Has anyone had any experience with
this system or one like it?
