    I'm sure I and others have beaten this one to death but here we go again. Running atlas switches and some, not all of my locos, have a problem with them. The front trucks make the turn but the rears continue on straight.

    Any thoughts?

    Try filing the top corner of the points down to a bevelled edge. Sometimes the square corner will cause the wheels to pick it and bounce over, rather than being guided through.
