Yes Woodrow, I remember Midlin. Best thing about it was early HO narrow gagers could cut the intended top rail off, then turn it over and have something that looked like a lower rail (required several beers to look exceptable) I think that John Allen did this. Mr Greene -AKA the ORACLE --probably can enlighten us further on this subject.

And as Woodie said-- Lindsey motors were love/hate sort of thing, I had several arguments with Mudge (RIP) about this.  He loved them -but I don't think that he ran them much. I. hated them.  One Pittman DC60, more or less the "gold standard," would outlast 6 Lindsey's in my experience--and the Pitman's got the snot run out of them at the old club layout. Cost less also.

Beautiful pieces--but didn't last long with continuous running


PS Never saw a Midlin switch. Might be that Midlin couldn't figure that out either.

Fix it again, Mr Gates--it still works!"
