28:29 - Manual doorbolt turnouts control (2004)

How would you like to build manual turnout controls from commonly available materials for less than $4 each? These EasyThrow turnout controls even have that turn-pull-turn action like a real switchstand. Covers all the materials, construction steps, installation and turnout control mechanism tuning.

Note: This video was originally shot in older Standard Definition and then upsampled to HD for TMTV. As a result, the image is softer than is typical for TrainMasters native HD video.


Need to use the alternet video program--can only watch in 5 second bits.  Great videos-the alternet site works fine; but none for this video.


A number of the original archive video postings still don't have the alternate player enabled. We enabled the alternate player for this one, and we'll work on getting more done soon.


Do you worry about powering the frog in your turnouts, or just let the locomotive pick up from wheels still on powered track?
