    We need a lot more info to help. What kind of turnouts, locos/wheel base, etc. Diesels should not have that problem. Do you have the turnouts wired? With machines? Or just frog feed. Etc. More detail please!

  • geoffsays:

    As Morgan says, we need more information. Including what exactly the problem is.

    If your cars and the 2 locos are quite old, it’s possible that the size of the wheel flanges is too large for your new and possibly finer scale switches.
