    Default Realistic Turnout with only basic tools

    I have done this N Scale turnout with bare basic tools without any Jigs. without even NMRA Gauge (because I don't have one).

    Thanks! I am sure most of the n scaler's in the west may not do the DIY turnouts since they are available ready made and easy to buy if you are living in US UK. but for the person like me in the east its not available in local market and its quite expensive to buy from the west via eBay cause the shipping makes it too expensive. that's the reason I made the turnouts by my self.

    I also heard that Code 55 turnouts are difficult to find and expensive compared to code80 turnouts.
