Switching

Switches may be mechanical, magnetic or a combination of various force managing tools.

The following rail images illustrate what the drive boggies look like in the rail and when traveling through a switch.

As the rail splits, the boss and slots control keep boggie on rail.
Boggie must be constrained from rotating off the rail in the switch.
Mounted inside the rail is a slot system for directing boggies navigating the switch.
Mechanical boss actuator rides in the slots through the switch.
