Is Closed
Due to more health issues with my wife and I, along with losing my rail extruder and some suppliers of other parts, and with increased operating costs, I have decided to close SwitchCrafters after 16 years.

I really appreciate all my customers that I have had over the years, but it is time for me to turn it over to someone younger.

All orders I currently have will be finished up and shipped as planned. Also, if anyone has a question or issue with any product that I have built, please call me.

The website will change in the future but the phone number will stay the same.

Thanks to all,

About Shipping Cost!!
Please disregard the UPS shipping charge for items that can be mailed in a 6"X9" padded envelope via USPS. I will always ship the most economical method and customers ONLY pay actual charge.
UPS is automatically calculated for all items but in some cases, it just does not make sense!

SwitchCrafters offers multi-radius switches. Click on "Turnouts" button and navigate down to the frog number.

SwitchCrafters primary product line consists of ALL Aluminum, Code 215, 250, and 332 switches, completely assembled, ready for you to drop into your layout. For the Garden Railroaders who prefer to run battery-powered locomotives instead of track power, SwitchCrafters is your source. Aluminum rail systems are more economical and do not require the same cleaning as track powered systems. All aluminum switches come with rail weathering at no extra charge.
For track-powered customers, SwitchCrafters also offers Nickel Silver in Code 215, and Code 250, as well as Brass Code 332 switches. An optional micro-switch is available for any of the switches.

Narrow gauge and Standard gauge switches are designed using 3D CAD software and are available in #4, #6, #8, #10, and 14 & 19 degree crossings. Wye?s are also available in all sizes. Switches are tool spiked onto the latest composite material that is intended for long term out door use.

Add your choice of throw mechanisms for only the cost of the throw. See product catalog for available throw mechanisms.

Every effort has been made to keep the costs down so that those who are new to Garden Railroading can begin to enjoy this hobby with their families
News & Updates

All switches are built with a machined brass insert at the frog point to reduce wear. The point also reaches further into the pocket for a smoother wheel transition. All switches are built using the NMRA standards.
