TURNOUT HO SCALE CODE 70, #5a FROG #14-810 Left Hand

#5a Standard Turnout;
This turnout is a standard #5 turnout with an 11.42 degree frog angle and a straight diverging track. The Point End of the turnout has an additional four ties making it slightly longer than a normal turnout.

How or where to use;
1. The additional four ties allows connecting a series of #5a Standard Turnouts, one after the other, to form a ladder track where each body track, including between the mainline and the first body track, has 2-1/16 inch track spacing (NMRA Standard). The angle of the ladder track will be the same as the frog angle 11.42 degrees. A ladder track made using #5a's forms a classic yard often seen in large, prototype yards but is not a space saving type of ladder track.
2. When the #5a Standard Turnout is used for other than a ladder track, the additional ties on the Point End cab be left straight, flexed to a curve or trimmed off, as desired.
