|CN switchstand HO assembly instructions [message #47015] Sun, 15 April 2012 03:55 UTC
This post will explain how to assemble the HO scale model of a Racor 31B switchstand. The kit includes a lantern and targets for Canadian National, BC Rail, Algoma Central and Ontario Northland modelers.|
The mast and handle rotate 90 degrees and a crank is included to hook the mast to the turnout throwbar so the switchstand target and handle rotate when the turnout is thrown.
The kit is now available for sale at The Credit Valley Railway Company ( http://www.cvrco.com/index.htm ) and was modeled from the real switchstand at the front of the store.

To start here's a photo of an assembled and painted HO switchstand and lantern set on an Atlas turnout next to an assembled S scale model.
