The email link in Cliff's original post has a typo in 'logisITCs'.
Try this instead:
Thank you so far for the encouraging posts. I apologize about the typo.
See my corrected address below.
To answer some of your questions... I posted a photo in on the z group
website last night of a completed turnout as well as a pre-production tie
strip. It in the folder entitled "quick switch". I will do a website
update by the weekend.
If sales go well with the #5 turnout (100 units or more sold), I will of
course release the #7. No problem there.
I am not so sure that doing larger turnout #'s is a good idea for me in the
near future unless Altas happens to come out with a larger turnout. The
significant benefit to _most_ Z scalers is being able to utilize the ready
to lay components from Atlas and crank these things out at the workbench for
less than $15 each.
I had not considered doing a tie strip with the peco/marklin tie profile
because the code 55 rail components are not a close fit with the peco code
60 rail. Of course with some mods, one could make it work. Again, if it
seems like there is significant demand, I will do it. The nn3ers might be
able to help out here because many of them use the peco track and this would
be a bit of a crossover item.
Again, please let me know if you have any other questions.
- That seems to have worked...wonder how I missed that... Thanks!

You would have to aquire the Atlas turnouts yourself. Some places sell them
for as little as $6.50ish and I've also seen them for as much as $10.50.
That's why I gave a "ballpark" estimate per turnout.
