    Default Trying to make manual switch points

    Hi! I'm trying to make manual switch points using the SanB to Bars Yard track rule, and I'm ending up with switches that are fused. Manual Junctions has been selected in the bottom left fly-out, and the RW files have been verified.

    Is there solution to this problem?

    Hopfuly, a screen shot is attached.

    Cheers; Chuck F.

    Here's my second attempt to upload a pic. You may have to move pic to Windows Photo Gallery to see it properly.

    The switch on the far left and on the far right are fused - rails joined together and will not open by controlling the switch stand.

    The image is too small.

    You should save it as a JPG which is not more than 100 Kb in size and then attach it to your post.

    You can not use 2 different track types in a switch which is one of the causes of what you got. Another cause is the tracks not using the same gradient.

    See this thread;

    For a step by step using free utilities to take and post screenshots.

    As for the switchstands, rsustk01.zip and rsustr01.zip are needed for default US tracks, since the US tracks have been screwed up for two years and whoever is running the circus this week hasn't gotten around to fixing them yet. The default unmodified US yard track rule has no switch levers and two of the three yard track textures are bugged.

    Hi! Thanks to those who replied to the original post. In adding to what has already been mentioned as to why switches sometimes can't be made properly, I found I was trying to lay switches across track joints. This problem has now been addressed in the post by Sniper297 "Tracklaying FAQ"

    Thanks, and Cheers; Chuck F.
