For my 7/8th indoor layout I decided to go with modified Maerklin gauge 1, code200 track. Here is my first switch, build from an old Märklin standard switch with 1020mm radius.

I straightened the curved part after the frog and so got an about 15degree switch angle.

I cut off the plastic sleepers and nailed the rail down to 1,5 cm wooden sleepers. Also I used some Ozark rail plates that I had in the rail building box. They are G-scale but I think it looks ok.

Some screw imitations are missing on the frog plate.

Hi Juergen :wave:


The new 7/8ths switch looks pretty cool ! :cool:

The plates look good.


What size cross-section are the wooden ties ?

& how long is the switch, from end to end ?

I'm curious. :bg:


:moose:

Thank you Si.

Length of the switch is about 395mm. Width of the sleepers is 1,5cm, height 5mm.


The track will be bedded in Sand, as I have already done with the  "1:22,5 scale on 32mm track" version of Toeffelholm, many years ago.
