Over the years I've used many Tortoise turnout motors with some having served on 3 different layouts or modules. Most of these don't get installed in the conventional way, with the wire going up through the deck to the throw bar. I often mount them upside down and use .030 diameter piano wire traveling through 1/8 inch square tube to carry the movement to turnout. Examples of this can be seen in the recent post First trains run in staging yard.
Yesterday finished building another turnout and it seems like the best one yet. It will be used to connect two more of the staging tracks and it's motor will be mounted in a similar way as this one.
