Turnout vs switch
No issues there. They are both prototype terms... for different things. A turnout is the whole assemblage of rails that allow one track to become two. A switch is only the movable rails, throwbar, etc. As I always say, "a trainman can line a switch, but it takes a whole track gang to line a turnout."
