Help needed to to change a Peco point int a sprung tram point

Postby johna » Sun Sep 04, 2016 10:24 pm

Folks, I need help. I would like to turn a Peco 009 point into a sprung tramway point but not sure how to do it. I remember years ago someone did if from a oo point but I can't seem to find the posting now.

Hope someone can help.

for anything tramway /infill suggest looking at my 3D printed track system if you are going to build own point, but did start on an infill design for Peco N gauge Setrack point. The difficulty with the 9mm gauge point is that not much between the rails can be infilled.
To make the point blades sprung, which I assume is what you mean, you need to remove the small locking spring in centre of tiebar, so blades can move freely. Then you need some way of attaching a length of brass wire, so tiebar brings back each way, and some way of locking in each position. I did start looking at a way a Peco PL12 unit could be used, but have not got far.

Simon are they available for N gauge as I don't have the skill to build a point.

I did start on a infill for N gauge point. It was OK, but large gaps in centre because of movement of point blades. Will need to have another look.
