I like Peco myself. There is a more popular brand out there that I will never buy again. I have probably close to 100 of this brand on my layout and a few years ago they began to electrically fail. As I am not an expert I will leave this brand nameless. How ever I will give a few hints. He was very strong, map books are called this name, it begins with A. Now some will say Peco is to expensive but it is worth it to me.

switches

Looking at your layout I can see where taking out and replacing a switch would be a b----. I haven't started laying track yet, just getting started. I was just thinking about how you would go about replacing a switch if it went bad. Sounds like having a tooth pulled. There is a lot more I am going to look at on your site. Its very nice.

Switches

I haven't look that much for switches at the LHS. I did notice that they had a lot of Atlas. Must be a good mark up on them. I want to thank you members for your feed back. Thanks Earl

Thank you for the compliment. I have installed one replacement, I would rather have a tooth pulled.
