Narrow Gauge - Part 14
I was planing to use the standard Atlas switch machines on the hidden narrow gauge staging yard in the open hearth building, but found out the hard way that the narrow gauge engines I built have parts that get snagged on the machines and derail the loco. So - the solution that still allows me to use the relatively inexpensive Atlas machines - I used some brass wire and a plastic guide tube to fabricate a linkage to allow the machine operate smoothly without snagging the engine. The photo shows the linkage - the machine still needs to have it's wiring connected.
