News just in from Alan at TGauge.com......
The new points from Eishindo are "...on their way soon...." - direct quote from Alan's email.
And here's a photo:
If what I see is right....it looks as if there might be only a 2mm "deadspot"!
Looking closely at the original of the photo Alan sent me, it looks as if the central plastic section has been replaced with a metal insert that picks up power by partly "flange running" and partly normal running on an extension to the blade.
I'll definitely keep my ear to the ground....or should it be on the rail......for further news on this one!
