Rick, I sent an e-mail to Asdpen in germany. I have attached my e-mail and their reply. I have sent a second e-mail requesting specifics on an order of 10 machines. I forward that it comes through.


The machines run off of 15 volts AC and are controled by an SPST toggle. They have contacts to control frog power. Their is a switch on the machine to control the speed of operation. We have over 65 on the RR and they have worked beautifully! Would you believe we use floral wire from Wal-Mart for linkage?


Contact me off list for further info.

I have over 50 of your switch motors installed on my model railroad and I need at least 50 more!
I have purchased these from Aspen Models in Aspen Colorado but they seem to be out of business.
Is there another supplier of your products in the US? If not, can I order them directly from you?
I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Rick, I envy your perserverance to find me! I am having the same problem! Aspen Models used to have an office in Aspen Colorado even though the main company is in Germany! Apparently, that office is closed! Aspen Models still has a web site which you can access by clicking on the American flag. Apparently, the machines will be shipped out of Germany. I plan to contact them to see just what the arrangements are. the price for the machines is now $17.82. If the shipping isn't outrageous, that's pretty resonable in todays market.


They are undoubtedly the best I've used in 50 years in the hobby.


If I find a source, Ill let you know!
