I've got a "Mole" on order and I think I'll pick up a Bluepoint when I'm at the LHS next. This little shelf layout is becoming quite the experimental layout. Thus far it has 4 different brands of track (3 different turnouts) and it looks like it will have 4 different brands of turnout controls too... Oh well, that's what this was for.

Also, after some searching on the internet, I found this article: http://www.troughtonmodelworks.com/movingthepoints.html which solders the points to pins. The pins can rotate in the throwbar thus eliminating some of the stress on the solder joint. It might be a tad too large for HOn3 but I am a bit tempted to give it a try.
