Re: dutch drop

Jared Harper <harper-brown@...>

My impression of the Dutch Drop was that, to get a car into a
point spur, the engine sped up and then the car to be dropped was
uncoupled. then the engine sped up even more and as it passed the
switch the points were thrown and the car rolled into the spur.
Getting the engine far enough ahead of the car to stop, back into a
trailing point spur (assuming there was one handy) and throw the
switch back would seem impossible, as well as even more dangerous,

What ever it is called, I want to know if there is anyone out there
who does this on their layout. If anyone has I would like to know how
it is accomplished in the model world.
