Many "canned" layout plans were never actually built by their designers, and a lot of them contain problems like this. Sure, the track fits together, but...Hmm, ok, no balsa, no Dremel.
Shame, since it's always fun dodging hi speed chunks of cutting wheels when they decide to fragment themselves.
I may be tearing the whole section out and starting over. I never liked where the track plan placed the turnouts, but not knowing any better I went ahead and followed it to the letter.:rippedhand:
Turns out a turnout at the end of a sharp corner, or start of an incline, is a bad thing, even when you're using exquisitely engineered technical marvels made all the better with a few TF tweaks.
That'll set me back a bit time-wise, and goes against my "I'm gonna use what came in the box instead of buying more stuff" rule.
Was the incline in the original, or did you add it?
