Peco SL-E197 Small Radius Finescale Electrofrog Y Turnout
Nominal radius 610mm, angle 12 degrees, length 147.4mm.
Code 75 Finescale is for those enthusiasts who wish to operate trains on scale height rail. Most modern manufacturers currently produce locomotives and rolling stock suitable for use with Code 75 track. However, the advice is – test your rolling stock on a Finescale turnout before deciding to use Fine Trackage as flanges and back-to-back dimensions often vary.
Most Finescale Streamline turnouts (points) are only available with ‘live’ frogs – Electrofrog, except for the long & short crossings and the single and double slips which are also available with ‘dead’ frogs – Insulfrog.
For a description of the two types and wiring instructions, see our ‘How To’ page here.
For joining, use SL-110 or PL-81 pre-wired metal rail joiners to electrically join or SL-111 nylon rail joiners where an electrical break is required.
Can be joined to Code 100 Setrack & Streamline track by using either SL-112 dual standard rail joiners or SL-113transition track.
Fitted with an over centre spring for immediate hand control it automatically isolates the track not in use.
For remote control on permanent layouts, a point motor such as Peco PL-10 or Seep PM-2 can be fitted.
Can be fixed with SL-14 track pins.
