I'm still confused I don't need derailleurs on my layout so why do you or anyone else I mean sure they would be good to have along but wouldn't get a little annoying after a while to have a car derail on perpus 

Andrew I don't think anyone would use it on their model railroad for a functioning purpose, but to model a siding with one would be pretty cool and would probably be the question of everyone that sees your layout would ask.

I may even add one to mine.

Derailers!!!!!!!!

Derailleurs are gears used on a bicycle.  At least learn the correct railroad term.  We'll overlook the other spelling error.  Smiley

every day you show now little you actually know about railroading.

derails are extremely common in real life. they are a safety device that has prevented untold damage and loss of life. they prevent cars parked on a siding from rolling out on the mainline and colliding with trains should their brakes bleed off. had there been a derail on the mm&a where that oil train tied down, there would have been no lac megantic disaster.

on the railroads I was associated with, the derails were often connected to the mainline switch by rods running along the ties, so that opening the mainline switch also closed the derail. add to this arrangement an electric lock on the mainline switch, and you have an almost foolproof system.
