I've been working on constructing 2 VR turnouts in HO Scale 5'3". A different approach was tried this time.
The VR turnout were drawn off Mark Bau's web site - VR 600 feet turnout. In HO they are 380mm long. Though the blades of the turnout don't start for approx 40mm.
The turnout plan is attached to a glass plate with watered down PVA (at least 50%), so I have a solid base to work with. PCB Boards are then glued onto the turnout plan also using watered down PVA. The PCB is glued to the plan between the timber sleepers.
