Turnout replacement on the South Yard Industry Track

I converted a pair of Walthers code 83 number 5 turnouts to make them electrically DCC friendly, and installed them on my HO Scale model railroad layout some time ago. However, the throwbar and it's connection to the point rails were damaged.

After working on them off and on for the last several weeks, I've made the decision to just replace them with new Micro Engineering code 83 DCC friendly turnouts. Follow along as I remove the old ones and replace them with new turnouts to avoid future problems on this busy piece of industrial trackage behind my yard.

Stay tuned to the end of the video as my son and I operate a few trains over the new track!
