Tortoise™ Slow Motion Switch Machines
The CIRCUITRON Remote Tortoise™ Mount consists of a molded base mechanism to which the Tortoise™ (not included) is mounted. An adjustable lever arm is fastened onto the Tortoise™ output and drives a stainless steel wire inside a flexible teflon tube, much like a sub-miniature choke cable. This thin wire attaches to a compact actuator mechanism and is mounted beneath the turnout. It includes a spring wire and brass tube to transmit the motion to the points above. The mounting bracket may be secured in any position and up to 18” away from the turnout points—even above the layout inside a structure, if desired. The points actuating mechanism requires 1/2” clearance under the turnout sub-roadbed. The RTM is fully adjustable for all scales and brands of turnouts.
