844-

There are a couple of versions of these made by different manufacturers. Check
the Walthers catalog. I think the one cited by PacNo might be the only hinged
one around.

My question is why would you want to derail your train? I worked too hard to get them to stay on!!!!  Grin

peco makes a single point type derail. it works like a regular switch, and would be easier to use on a model railroad than the type that fits over the rail.

Derailers are used on sidings the are connected to mainline trackage.The reason being if a freight car gets loose the derailer will derail the car before it can get to the mainline and cause a wreck.

These were very, very common in the UK, you'd see them or versions of them at every single location where there was a freight, or passenger car yard or on runaround loops, storage sidings in stations, anywhere where access from a non running line to a running line was required.  Practically every station with a "goods yard" had them.

You can tell by the chewed up ties on the right hand side that this one has been used, maybe a couple of times.  Smiley

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

In the real world a derailleur is to keep a car or cars from rolling out of a siding onto the main line.  Like in the real world the switch crew most check to see the the derailleur is not in place, or closed.  I don't know any one that uses them on a model, but they could.

It should be obvious by now, this is model railroading.

Derail guys, it's "derail".

A "derailleur" is a propriety system for shifting gears on a bicycle.
