    Default Osborn Models switch stands + Kato Unitrack?

    Has anyone come up with a good way to use Osborn Models switch stands with Kato unitrack turnouts?

    So here's the dilemma...a person would have to make some sort of platform or base to set the switch stand on and ballast around, because of the height of the roadbed, else the switch stand would just hang in air, using the Kato Unitrack system.

    I wondered if anyone had been down this road before, and if so, what they did, or used, or if someone made a little wiz-bang thing commercially.

    There was someone who made them with the base. They made a variety of switch stands and other details for several brands of track. Though they've been temporarily (I think?) closed for a few years for some reason.

    The name escapes me and it's gonna bug me now...
    Perhaps someone else can chime in?

    Edit - thanks to PW&NJ's better memory: NZT products, and yes, they are no longer in business, unfortunately.
