Note: HARDLY EVER SEE THIS FOR SALE.
You are looking at a lot of a 49" long Gargraves (possibly Ross?) DOUBLE CROSSOVER SWITCH with three DZ-2500 Z Stuff for Trains switch machines. Some refer to this as a double slip switch.
This item came off of a layout. The machines have been tested for power only. They get power. You will be working this awesome model railroad masterpiece into your own layout. It will require some knowledge and perhaps another motor or master. This is AS IS.
- 49" Long
- 6.25" wife
- FOUR SWITCHES IN ONE!!!!
- What appears to be Tubular Nickel Silver Rail and simulated black ties
- Three DZ-2500 switch machines
OPERATIONAL NOTE: Because of the distance between the center rails in the middle diamond a relay such as a DZ1008 may be required to stop a stall. It depends on your specific center roller pickup spacing.
A COMPARISON: When similar items are available at Ross, the two most current comparable items are the #175 double crossover switch WHICH IS ONLY 32" LONG, and the #8 Double slip switch which is closer to what this is. The #8 double crossover switch is $629 plus another $135 for three DZ-2500s (as is here)! That is $764. IF it is in stock.
CONDITION: The three switch machines tested for power only. All get power. One end may be missing the wooden ties in the middle between the two rails. Wires have been cut as this was taken off of a layout. You may need something else to make it all work (a main controller of some sort). Minor signs of use here and there in the wood ties. Rail color is uniform (flash sometimes made one end look a different hue, but this is not the case). ENLARGE THE PICS. Pictures are part of the description. Sold as is.
With a print out of possible wiring options for you.
A NOTE about shipping: SHIPPING INCLUDES INSURANCE AND SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION. In addition, when an item is this long, it qualifies as oversize and will be more expensive than just the weight-based rates. This is on the SHIPPER, not us.
