      That sounds like the switch blades, as in the picture I just posted - try making sure the moving blade actually connects to the fixed one.

  4. The. Peco points are a good electro frog points & wired correctly

      Perhaps the wheels are wider or need to be re- gauged?

  5. Peco points

    Do anybody have trouble with peco points when trains go over them that cause a short every time even though you clean the track & clean the loco wheels & oil it
  6. Ballast track

    I am just wondering what is the easiest way to ballast the track the old fashioned way using 50/50 glue water washing liquid or try ballast magic by deluxe material as I never ballast track before and which type of ballast is the best to use
  7. Electric problem

    When runs on my layout the locomotives keep stopping at the same part of the point is anything Ivan do to sort it out as I clean the track before every run and clean the wheels on the locomotives as my ecos command station keeps showing the short sign as the loco comes near it any tips will greatly needed
