Louden cross-track switches allow two monorail tracks at the same elevation to cross at right angles. The switch is a complete unit constructed of formed steel, with a 12″ Louden SuperTrack tongue. For better alignment of the track flanges, all tracks are fastened securely to the switch frame. This also prevents any creeping of the track. Open tracks are guarded by rugged mechanical baffles.
Pulleys are supplied with the switch to be attached to the superstructure at the point most convenient for operation. Fifteen foot pull ropes are supplied as standard for operating the switch.
