    Default US3 tracks 2 track xover

    Anyone know which US3 Tracks or DB3 Tracks will accomplish a 2 track xover with switches?
    Meaning I can go from track 1 to track 2 and vice versa.

    Do you mean a scissors crossover. Such are not used on main lines in the US so if I was
    doing this, I would use M-tracks #15 or #20 turnouts and have a left-hand and a right-hand
    in the same interlocking. This arrangement is called a "universal crossover". M-tracks also
    has a #24 but use of those is very rare. Most lines that are exclusively freight will use the
    #15, which has a 25-30mph maximum speed. Passenger lines will use a #20 which has a
    40mph maximum speed.

    That is a problem. I don't touch those unusual track or road types. That may be the problem
    I have with my Virginian route, road that is.

    Click on the carrot at the bottom left where it says Show Work Plan

    If track piece in route is not in green, you are out of luck
