I'd like to find out if it's possible to make a compact wye using Kato's Unitrack #4 turnouts and new #2 wye turnout? I know how to make a wye using #6 turnouts and #2 wye, but it eats up too much space. Thanks.


Hmm... first, buy a
crowbar...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

What angle do you want? 90? And, do you have a minimum radius that you don't want to go below?

I think 90 degrees would be good, and I don't want to go below 9-3/4" radius.


Hmm... 98.6 degrees is
normal, Kiz...

How compact is compact? Or what is minimum radius? I don't have these smaller radius curves but SCARM shows you can make one with your turnouts and Y using these;
two R 249-15 (Kato 20101)
two R249-45 (Kato 20100)
four S64 (Kato 20030)
one S124 (Kato 20020).
Size of the wye is about 13" x 26" using those ~9 3/4" curves.

Oh and have a banana for Dee.

That works for me. Thanks!


Hmm... thanks for the
banana. Only one...?
