The purpose of a Catch Turnout is to derail a vehicle before it rolls out of a siding or branch line on to a main line.

If you wish to mix wheel standards on your 00/H0 layout, this is the trackage to choose. Code 100 rail allows flange depths up to 1.6mm which means that both vintage and current stock will run happily together.

The wide range of turnouts and crossings in this series includes every type, and the geometry of this range has been cleverly designed to make it easy to build convenient, complex and aesthetically pleasing formations using combinations of small, medium and large radius turnouts and crossings. Layout plans suggestions can be found in our publications ‘Track Plans for Layouts to Suit all Locations’ (Ref PM-202), ‘60 Plans for Small Railways’ (Ref no PB-3), and ‘Track Plans for Various Locations’ (Ref no PB-66).

Technical Specification:

  • Length: 98mm
Why use catch points?
Railways around the world use catch points (referred to as "derails" in the US), to protect main lines from unbraked runaway vehicles. Deliberately derailing a freight wagon sounds drastic, but is infinitely preferable to allowing it to stray into the path of an oncoming train. They were thus commonly found at the exits of yards.
Also used at intervals up long gradients to prevent uncoupled vehicles running all the way back down the hill.
Use them on your own layout to acheive prototypical levels of details, or as convient way to stop your trains.
