    Wow. You have a very professional how to
    build turnouts manual. Very clear and easy to follow.
    The pictures clarify it nicely.

    As one who did a lot of radio commercial writing in my
    first career it is such a pleasure to see properly formed
    sentences and the correct usage of words and
    punctuation. I am amused at the writing that some of the guys
    post on the Forum.

    One suggestion I might make would be to include a note
    when you begin the process of soldering rails to the ties
    that you realize it will look like a short circuit is being
    created and that will be taken car of later.
    I was concerned as I read along about soldering the rails
    to the ties while at the
    same time I knew you would not do that. Is there a reason
    to wait until final assembly to cut the tie strips? It would seem
    easier to do before laying them on the base.

    Could the point rails be used to power the frog as some
    commercial turnouts do?

    I would think several of our members would want to give
    this a try. It looks like an enjoyable way to pass time.
    In earlier years I would attempt it but my hand are so
    shaky now I doubt I could get it done right.
