Currently on my layout I have several Atlas Remote Turnouts, you know the ones with those big ugly black boxes on the side. I have 8 LH Remote Turnouts, but only 3 locations where I can mount them and (in my mind) hide the black box convincingly. This leaves 5 LH remotes unused. Coincidently, in my yard area I have a run of 5 RH turnouts all in a row. I was wondering if the black boxes could be removed from the LH Turnouts and mounted inversely on the RH Turnouts? Scenically this would be easy to do because of two factors: 1. a dirt road runs parallel to the track in the yard at this point. 2. the whole layout is made on a 2" foam base. However, I was wondering if Technically it would work. Has anyone done this sucessfully? A second question also occurred, for my manual turnouts, again Atlas with big ugly black boxes, are there realistic ground throws that would work with these turnouts. Side Note: Last year I recieved a box of used turnouts from a friend in return for maintaining his computer. Right now I cannot afford to replace the turnouts with the Peco/Tortoise combination I would like.
