Thirteen Lever Interlocking Machine

Nothing makes an Interlocking Tower, such as our kit #185 PRR MO Tower or #702 Interlocking Tower stand out more on a layout then providing it with a detailed interior and our latest structure detailing kit does just that. Similar to the equipment once found in the actual MO Tower, our Thirteen Lever Interlocking Machine will add prototypical realism to any tower.

The 100% laser-cut kit includes a floor-cutting template for installing the levers in any of our Tower kits, a new floor plate with laser-scribed details, and even a laser-cut paint mask along with color suggestions so the individual levers can be painted appropriately per railroad practice. Once assembled, the levers can be positioned to the modelers liking. The finished Interlocking Machine measures 1.25 inches long x 0.5 inches wide x 0.75 inches high with the lever bases extending below the floor level an additional 0.25 inches.
