Philphil posted a topic in Track SystemsHello all, As with any railroad there comes a time that a railroad track has to cross a roadway, which requires a grade crossing or grade separation. Since space is an issue, even in N-Scale, I am forced to opt to use grade crossings instead of separations. I can't say I'm particularly thrilled with any of the N-Scale Japanese-style crossings currently in production, but I really do like those Kato Unitram plates. Has anyone cut the plates, parallel to the track in order to space them further apart for use on standard Kato Unitrack? ~Phil
Its finally here and apart from the drap green Box everything looks amazing :) But right after the unboxing people from Europe will be dissapointed that Kato gives you a switching power supply which is capable handling 240V and has an exchangeable Plug but doesnt include the european Plug :icon_scratch: So you will either end up finding that thing somewhere online or end up doing what i did Which is solder the Plug from the stock power suplly that connects to the Crossing Gate to a USB Cable which gives you the advantage to use any USB Port or modern Cell Phone Charger to power up the Crossing Gate :angel5: The next thing i personaly didnt liked was the fact that the sensor tracks dont match the look of Katos modern douple track But you can easily fit the sensors into any 62mm Track (drill and hand file required) Looks way better now :) Running Trains is much more fun now :) But the fun can stop at the first disassembly! The sensor cables are connected with small Plugs that can be hard to unplug but you should NEVER even think about pulling on the Cables!!! Trust me You dont have to solder or to strip a Wire but its really tricky to fix it because of the size (cramp alert) But still i think this sweety is worth every YEN
