I'm in the process of building up my first complete layout (N scale), and I'm having a blast So much of a blast that my switches aren't working properly. I got my track nailed down, everything worked fine, I then ballasted & painted the track (Pretty sure thats where the problem is lying), and after doing that they don't quite make it over. I've checked the ballast, and it doesn't look like its hindering the switch (I have 4 that I'm having this problem with). I'm pretty sure the culprit is a combo of the paint & the scenic cement. Anyone have any tips on cleaning out those areas short of pulling the switch out & doing a nice clean/repair? I actually had the thought of taking a dremel to it to cut out the switches, then I'd just solder it back into place, which could be interesting :thumb: Thanks!
