I need some assistance. I’m working on some scale tracks for the club layout. One of them will be a beam scale with scale rails and separate bypass rails for locos.

What I want to know is when did the single track load sell scales come into use. I was thinking about using one of those in the steel mill trackage. I just didn’t know when those came into service.
