Hi, I need a turnout on my shelf's railway strip [1] (plus attached).

I have an S'ish curve made from two 3/4 length 59035. I simply need, going from the right in the figure, to turn out to the left to a new parallel track. I need to turn left between points 4 and 5 in the figure, going from the left to the right.

I will make the turnout from, again, two 3/4 59035. I need to add some more area to the shelf, on the left side.

I think it may be called a symmetrical two-way turnout, since both sides of the turnout will be curved 3/4 59035.

This is long enough to complete a turnout, so there will clearly be two track connection points at the two "fan-outs".

A half 59035 is not enough. So I was lucky, because I didn't think of this last year.

I thought to make this by inspecting thoroughly how the 59088 + 59092 are built, and just copy what I see. I have ordered a set, nice to have on the next holiday floor layout anyhow.

Any other suggestions? Recipes? Pitfalls?

If you look at PECO 0-scale, you might find a little help BigGrin

I know it's not the right size, and probably not the right exit angle; but take a look anyway Blink

They even have this nice PDF: https://cdn.shopify.com/....pdf?3933759673765583712

I don't have anything to offer towards your question, but wanted to say thank you for sharing your blog. I spent my Sunday morning sipping coffee and reading through your journey with the crocodile. I really enjoyed it!

I inherited my Father's marklin 5758 crocodile when he passed and look forward to building a small shuttle layout similar to yours. Thank you and I'll be checking back for updates!

Thanks a lot, @hennebror!

You made my day! It's so nice to get some comments from readers! Do enjoy your late father's 5758 crocodile!

I see that I say in the note that the revision date is "(revision 24.12?.47)". Is it possible that you could check it out for me? I only tried to read it on some picture, I can't remember where. I don't have it in any catalogue, at that time H0 was alone.
