Has anybody built/used stub points





Can be from 2 to 5 way, AFAIK prototypes were used on narrow gauge industial lines, for example, a few were used on the clay workings on the Purbecks; no filing down of the blades just multiple frogs!

Could see that 5 way would be handy on a limited space fiddle yard

Yup. No point blades to grind/file :doublethumb :doublethumb :doublethumbHeavy duty bars though, and the other ends need hinges. Easy 3 way turnout, that as you say saves space.

Hi Mike.   Having had no experience of Narrow Gauge, either prototype or model this set up looks less than graceful. We’re these points restricted to freight use? Mind you they are space saving.  Best wishes. Kevin

The narrow gauge lines on the Purbeck clay workings were basically freight but did carry a few passengers, the first and last trains of the day would carry workers to/from the workings in the open clay wagons, but during the 1930s there was actually a "school train" one covered wagon adapted to take workers' children to the nearest school, there is a picture of it in a paperback of railways in the Purbecks.
