sectional track popped out of rail joiner how to fix?
I am using atlas sectional track code 80. In my layout, one side of the track slipped out of the rail joiner. Of the four rails of track that come together by railjoingers one of the three is out of the rail joiner, but only one side. So out of a combination of four rails joined by two rail joiners one side of the connect points is out of the railjoiner.
As you can imagine there is a bump where the track is raised. I elmer glued the track (non-diluted) to a cork road bed. I noticed this while I was painting rail.
How can I fix this? When the paint dries I'm going to run a loco and a box car or two to see how it has impacted the track.
I was thinking of spraying or applying water to loosen the glue and pull up a few sections of track to fix the problem.
What have you guys done?
