Switch Your Track

Ever wondered what a railroad switch looks like or how it operates? I bet you have. So here's one pictured directly above. To make the switch all you do is stomp on the pedal on the left which releases the weighted arm and allows switching of the rail lines. Simple, except when rain rusts the switch or the cold doesn't allow movement of the arm. Sturdy people these railroad worker types. Know that.
