    Has anyone had success in attaching working NJ International Low Ramapo switchstands (Model 1914) to Atlas Custom Turnouts. It is easy to link them together, but when I throw the turnout, the distance that the linkage moves, doesn't turn the switch stand a full 90-degrees.

    Hi Warren, could you possibly post a picture of how the switch stand attaches? Are you using the switch stand in conjunction with an under-the-table switch machine and linkage? A friend of mine had the same problem...we finally hit on adding a 90 degree bellcrank to the linkage.

    If you are using the switch stand to throw the turnout manually possibly re-locating the attachment point on the turnout's throw bar would solve the problem.

    Know this isn't much help but maybe a starting point.
