S-Trains is happy to provide this information about BK Enterprises, hope you find it helpful.
We make our turnouts with non-weathered rail - because of the difficulty in removing the weathering. Micro Engineering does make a weathering solution, or painting the turnout with Floquil "Roof Brown" paint will accomplish the same. We can also make brass code 100 turnouts.
Many people are under the illusion that hand-laying track and turnouts by hand is difficult, tedious, nerve-wracking and a host of other adjectives. This is not the case. Hand laying is for those modelers who want to take the time to enjoy one of the finer arts of modelling. Many of our customers use flex track for the roadbed and hand-lay the turnouts. Granted, handlaying does take more time than using flex track and purchasing ready made turnouts. However, to go this route is just a matter of deciding what it is you want out of your hobby.
A good pair of needle nose pliers, 6" is suggested, some three point track gauges, and a NASG standards gauge is about all that is needed. This plus some patience and a willingness to keep the "art" in modeling.
NOTE!!!!! IT IS IMPORTANT TO LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE, OR PLAN TO USE DEE CONTROL, SO THAT WE CAN MAKE THE NECESSARY ADJUSTMENT OP USING A PC TIE FOR THE THROW BAR.
We do some custom work. Please contact us for more information.
