For the Battle Mountain industries I want to have a hands on operation so the turnouts will be controlled by push / pull rods from the fascia. This is something I had done on the Los Angeles Terminal District layout and saved all the components for use some day. That day is here.
Because I am adding a finished fascia to the front after installing the section into the layout this was going to require a different solution because I was going to need to remove the knob to put the fascia on.
Super glue can be used to attach the two metals securely and small set screws on the knob will hold it to the brass tube.
Enough space is left between the knob in it's pushed in position and the frame to allow for the thickness of the fascia and control panel.
More on the control panels and indicator lights in a future post.
