Re: dutch drop


Some times you only have one switch and it is a trailing point switch. Or you can keep it on the wrong end of your engine and "foot board" it until you find a run around track.
It was fronded upon by the RRs.

Why would you even want to do a "dutch drop"?

The goal is to get the car to the other end of the engine. What reasons
would there be to do that other than to switch a facing point switch. If you
are going to do a facing point move, why not just do the regular drop?
