I want to start building turnouts in code 125 and 148 using only Micro Engineering rail. If I buy a turnout fixture for code 148 rail, will I be able to build a turnout using code 125 with the same fixture?

Thanks,

Travis

Travis, answer is 'sort of'. The smaller rail will fit in the fixture - but it will not be tightly aligned. You'll have add the use of 2 (rolee type) or 3 point gauges to align the rail heads precisely. Go carefully and check with track gauges - all will work fine.

I estimate I have about 5 pounds of coupler springs somewhere in the vicinity of my workbench.
