My friend who is building a Civil War era HO layout thought he'd found a source for a code 70 wye turnout, but when it arrived it was HOn3.

Shinohara is gone. Does anyone know of a source for a single HO code 70 turnout? The only thing I've found so far is a BK Enterprises HO code wye 70 stub turnout, but don't know anything about it.

Building a turnout is above his skill and time frame at this stage. Any ideas, advice? Thanks.

There's a Shinohara version on Ebay right now:

David, Unfortunately he returned it to the seller as soon as he opened the package and saw it wasn't HO standard gauge. But I'll email him and ask where he got it and then send you a PM.

Peter, Thanks! But I didn't get your PM.
