Spotlight Review

 
"Unbelievably, the snap switch has evolved"
darbo
I remember the Atlas snap switches of my youth very clearly: the points were stamped sheet metal, riveted both at their pivot points and to the throwbar. They looked terrible, but could be made to perform well if you were willing to solder feeders to the points. The ones I recently received from Hobbylinc have actually been slightly updated. The points are now milled from a normal length of rail, and the rivets are gone. The throwbar is an all-plastic affair which the point rails clip into. the stock rails have a bit of milled in them for the points to nestle into... not very prototypical, but it seems to work decently well with my collection of oddball geared steam engines. The switch machines are still susceptible to overheating if current is applied for too long, but that's easy enough to fix with a simple capacitive discharge system. But, all in all, these look and perform far better than what I remember.
