Sorry, I've been away for a while. Now using TANE.

I was messing with a session in Chesapeake & Ohio RR, Hinton Division, and I wanted to see what switch leaver they used. Anyone know? It's payware and I can't bring it up in Surveyor to see.
I'm looking for a nice switch leaver that doesn't look like the standard one.

And, is there any new documentation around on signals, what to use where? I have the original signalling guide. I think it must be from 2004 or UTC

Any and all help would be great.

Content manager. Find the route (use the search filter on the left), right click, select View Dependencies, then View in main list. Scroll down or use the filter again (keyword "switch" might bring it up, possibly with a few others, or category = track object) to find the switch lever.

Peter (Gawpo50) used CNR Switch Stand Main 4.

You can edit the session, but you cannot not edit the route. This is how I found the exact asset used in the yard. I also recognized the asset because I use these switch stands all the time. That's scary... :)

Thanks for the tip sniper297 and for the kuid John.
I downloaded all of them. Might want to use them sometime.

I'm glad I can help. :)

I use these levers all the time in my routes. They're very similar to what the B&M and other local roads used up here in New England, especially the tall stands with the red targets on them which put them high enough to find in the snow.
