Installing MRServo Above the Layout

While most typical MRServo installations are done beneath the layout, one of our customers had a unique situation where the area under the turnout was obstructed.  Many thanks to Tim Mann for sharing this method and sending us photos of his installation.  Tim’s full set of installation pictures can be found on his Flickr page.

Here is the servo mounted next to the turnout:


The spring wire was bent into a “Z” shape to provide the necessary spring tension on the points of the turnout:


Finally, here are examples of the turnout in the normal and thrown positions:



Eventually, Tim plans to build a small structure to cover the servo.

If you have a unique application for MRServo, or any of our products, please let us know.
