Question about Tortoise Slow motion switches

1365 Views 7 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  tworail
Hello everyone, I am hoping someone here can give me some information about a box of Tortoise Slow Motion Switch Machines #800-6000 that someone brought to my store for us to consign on Ebay.

I am trying to figure out exactly what they are for or what they do. I am sure I can list them for just what they are, but just for my knowledge, I would like to know exactly what they are for and what they do. Thanks so much, in advance for any info and I apologize if I am in the wrong forum category for this question as I'm not sure as to where to post this question. Thank you again,

This a good article, the switch can be used for any scale and would be used for the advanced hobbyists with a layout on a table he can drill through! :laugh:

Switches can be fragile because the electromagnets burn up if used too long. This saves the switch for reuse as remote and not another manual one.
I am flattered. :rolleyes: Then again, TwoRail did most of the explaining.

I wonder, what pictures?:eek:hwell:
