Atlas Code 100 #4 Turnout LH Nickel Silver MK4 HO

Tower Stock# ATLU0281  •  Manufacturer Stock# 281
Notes from our tech department:
This is an HO Scale Nickel Silver Atlas Custom-Line #4 "Mark IV" Left Hand
Turnout Track Piece. It's for experienced train collectors.

As on earlier Custom-Line Turnouts, the new Atlas Custom-Line Mark IV
Turnouts are constructed so that regardless of switch point settling both
branches are powered. Due to this the new metal frog is insulated and carries
no current. As on earlier Custom-Line Turnouts, most locos will span the
insulated frog without loss of electrical pickup; however, engines of extremely
short wheelbase or diesels with single-truck pickup may hesitate or stall at
the frog. The problem is easily overcome by equipping turnouts with an
Atlas Snap Relay (item #200) which, when wired to the remote switch machine,
will energize the frog with track current of correct polarity depending on the
switch point setting.


9" track piece veers to the left on one end, as a separate track
continues straight.
