single piece of Marklin rolling stock that does not run through these
switches without a problem. The only engine I fiddled with after
getting the switches was the AZL sd75 and that was a 5 minute fix to
get it running flawlessly. Even my Japanese Z-gauge stuff runs
through it flawlessly. All the other engines ran fine through these
switches. The only thing that runs as well as this the the Peco and
Micro trains flex with Wright turnouts. I long ago put my Marklin
track and switches in the scrap pile and used anything including hand
laid to get away from those Marklin turnouts.
Anyone want a pair of Marklin turnouts? and some track?.
Buy a loop of Micro Track and a pair of switches and some extra
straight track and have a ball on the top of a table.
There are all sorts of nay sayers but you have to try it before you slam it.
Got 8 switches and looking for more.
