The Switchback Set

Built By: John G

Description: In the May, 2011 issue of Model Railroader magazine they ran a great article called Practical Tips for Switching Fun diagramming four operational areas of David Popp’s N scale layout. Each area had unique switching challenges and I thought they would make great t-trak modules (well sets actually). The four areas are:

The Switchback Set
The Turn Set
The Yard Track Set
The Terminal Set

I took each area and designed a two-triple module set. I’ll be incorporating The Turn into my operations oriented layout. See the full article for details on how to switch each situation.

The Switchback is made up of The Switchback Left and The Switchback Right.
