There were some #6's, a pair of #8's and 3-way #6.

A while i was dreaming what could be done with these switches if ... But that was still a deam. May be become true in the future.

All have all metal frogs and have to be live wired.

This were my first Code70 track and here is a comparison between Code 70 and code 83.

A comparison between old Shinohara Code70 (above) and one of the very last and DCC-friendly 3-way switches from Walther's made by Shinohara.

Are these the ones with the points as a solid unit?
One of my friends changed to DCC and found that they shorted out so replaced them with rail.
