HO Track Atlas NS Track Code 100 #6 Double Crossover


HO Atlas Code 100 Nickel Silver #6 Double Crossover

Built from 4 good condition Atlas #6 switches, an Atlas crossing and two pieces of Atlas sectional track.

This crossover will be disassembled for shipping.

The last two ties have been trimmed from each end of each switch so that the rail joiners could be soldered (without warping the plastic ties); see photos below.

These missing ties can easily be replaced using ties taken from any piece of Atlas nickel silver sectional track with black ties.

The plastic throw rods meant for tabletop switch machines have also been trimmed. These switches are meant for use with under table switch machines.

No switch motors included.

A #6 double crossover is ideal for mainline tracks.

A #6 double crossover can also save a lot of space when used at the entrance to a passenger terminal.


These switches were originally used on my now-dismantled High Bridge Branch of the Morristown & Erie RR set in northern New Jersey.

In particular, these switches, in a different configuration, formed the Flanders Junction Yard.

This fictious yard served to handle cars for the Mount Olive Iron Mines as well as those for the rich deposits of the nearby Naughtright Mines as well.
