If you happen to have a "Parker Store" in your area they are worth visiting. They can crimp together custom hoses, and typically have a lot of fittings and adapters on hand. If you know exactly what you need, "Surplus Center" has tons of hydraulic stuff (online) and good prices.

We always called them switches, as in 'Number 1 Track switch', or 'power witches, never turnouts, anyway.
I've met one or two witches over the years, but was not sure if they were manually operated or had power assist. :D

Well, you've got me there, BDD :lol: :lol: I never learned to type, and on the computer, I type with one or two fingers, so sometimes I miss a letter, or get them out of order. The spell check didn't get that one :roll: I've been in the cab with a couple witches, but I meant to say 'Switches' :oops:

Backing away quietly..
