Each box of P40 Switch Tracks contains 2x switches individually stacked with special cardboard separators. A full colour printed user guide is included with every box. This guide shows how to use the P40 for making many different track configurations such as parallel crossovers, sidings and yard ladders. It also contains guidance on how to avoid electrical short circuits and conflicts which can occur in track configurations such as return loops. Both the user guide and the P40 product packaging is made from 100% recyclable paper-based materials from responsibly managed sustainable sources (FSC certified).
The P40 switch can be used to make many useful and familiar track configurations. When combined with other Fx Track system elements, such as the S1.6 and S3.2 straight tracks and the R64P curve track, perfectly aligned parallel track arrangements can be made at any 8-stud offset interval. Yard ladders of any size can easily be constructed with the P40 switch. Each siding in the yard ladder will be perfectly aligned to an 8-stud grid.
