    • Waiting on stuff on evilbay to sell Bill, so is it $50 each or $50 for the pair of Right Hand switches?     Thanks  Mike

    • Mike, LGB only made originally 1200 series switches(4' diameter) and 1600 switches (in 8' diameter) I have both but thinking you want the larger. They would be $60.00 for the switches including electric controller or $ 50. with Manual, curved track would be $ 10.00 each piece all are well weathered but in good shape, Bill

    • its whatever the next size is up from the tight R1 switches.  Mine are fastened down on the layout, not planning to lift them up to see what number they are.  Kind of like LGB not making true 10' diameter curves.  I had to go with Piko for that.

    • In 35 years, I have never seen a LGB R2 switch.  Only R1, R3 and R5.  Not sure if anyone else makes an R2 switch.

    • I need the R2 switches.  R1 is to tight for my engines.

    • LGB has R2 track (15000 (approx 5 foot diameter)) but never made the switches.  R3 switches do exist (16xxxx series) and are 4 foot radius/8 foot diameter.  The LGB 3 way is an R1/R2 combo.

    • Yes, I believe that is the series of switches.  I have 2 LH ones, so I need the RH to finish the passing siding and house track on the layout.   along with those 2 curved sections.

    • are those like 1600 series switches? if so I have both L &R + 1600 curves, all well weathered but functionable,Bill

    • I am in need of two RH LGB R2 switches and 2 pieces of R2 curved LGB track sections.  weathered/dirty/used is just fine as its going on an outside railway.  Manual or powered switches are fine.  Thanks in advance.   Mike

      Thanks Tom, it only took me 35 years to find out the answer to the lead weight thing on Moguls and my thought were wrong for all those years. I will say the engine has been in the box all those years and not used until now, runs fine, all I had to do was install new traction tires, may order the weights, I will see how it goes. 



      Hi John - A couple additional thoughts to share with you.  First, if you want to confirm your Mogul has or doesn't have the motor block weights, you can removed the four screws from the bottom cover of the motor block.  You can see the front and rear weights, if there are any.  Second, some of the early follow-on 2018Ds produced did have weights in them.  In fact, I bought my 2018D in 1988 and it not only has the motor block weights but also a 4-Pin "D" motor block.  Most of the 2018Ds, even those with weights in them, were produced with 3-Pin "non-D" motor blocks.  The only issue with the non-D motor blocks is that you can't install a DCC Power or Sound Decoder unless the motor block is converted to 4-Pins (2 wires to decoder's track power connectors, and 2 wires to the decoder's motor connectors).

      Finally, if you decide to coat your Mogul's weights to protect them from lead oxidation, you'll want to soak them overnight to first to remove any oxidation.  I used cleaning vinegar originally but then found CLR works even better.  But if you don't find any oxidation on your lead weights, I wouldn't bother to do this.  It appears that hobbyists who live on the sea coasts get more lead oxidation than dryer areas.

         Hey, everybody, am I the only one whose mother said, "Hay for horses!" ?

      My mom didn't say that, but Sister Mary Bruno did.
