How well I remember those! They not only threw the points but had contacts for power routing. It could easily supply enough "thunk" to send the points into space! That makes me remember TRU SCALE milled roadbed and switches and before them, MIDLIN (Herbie, you awake?) track which had a tang on the bottom of the rail which fit into slots in the ties. I forget how they made switches (turnouts) using rails like that.
Then I remember KEMTRON loco kits which used Lindsay motors and Great Western "Brass Betsy" 2-8-0 kits...same motor. On & on & on......

KEMTRON HOn3 "Teakettle" from the 60's. Built by me and powered by Lindsay.

GREAT WESTERN HO "Brass Betsy" built by Bill (Mudge) long ago. Powered by guess what?
