Just wondering after reading the information on the sales website about the 3 Way #6 Turnout, is there really no documentation as to building this turnout? I have built quite a few #6 turnouts, LH and RH, but after looking at pictures of finished #6 3 Way Turnouts I can see that there are probably some tricky areas to consider. I don't see any documentation for HO either. Can someone point me to any info on building this critter. I'm not afraid to give it a try, but I always like to be as prepared as possible before embarking on a daunting task. Looks like I need a special point form tool for 3 Way points and the Track Assembly fixture. I have a Stockaid fixture for Code 55 ME rail and I assume it would work for this turnout. I couldn't find anything to tell me otherwise so far unless I overlooked it. Any suggestions or pointing me in the right direction for more reading and studying would be most appreciated.

Hello Inprinter,

You will find a comprehensive document in our Document Library - Printed Documentation, third item from the top. Here's the link:

You will need a 3-Way PointForm tool as well as the 3-Way assembly fixture but the StockAid tool you have will work just fine because it's rail-size dependent and not turnout specific.
