  1. (Didn’t Know which topic to put this in). What is the Japanese equivalent of a wig wag crossing or old crossing? Ive seen some but almost none. All of them are black and white, and it appears there is more than one type. I saved one image of one, but that’s basically all. If you know where to look or have a pic I’d love to see it!
  2. I had an issue with the detection tracks that KATO supplies with the KATO 20-652 Automatic Crossing Gate. These are only available as 62 mm tracks. In my lay-out the rail crossing is located in the tracks leaving the station. The barriers should close when a train leaves the station. If I installed a single detection track after the turnout before the signal, the barriers would close too late. Because the crossing is quite close to the station, I needed two detection tracks, one at the end of each platform such that the barriers close when either train A or B leaves the station (see photo). This requires the left detection track to be 64 mm long. I first try to use a 62 mm track and squeeze the platform in between. That proved to be too tight an forces the outer edge of the track upwards. So I needed to make the detection track longer... After ample consideration I dared to disassemble the detection track and saw one of the ends off. Using the end of the ballast bed and the rails of a 64 mm track I managed to extend the detection track to 64 mm. See photo's for the result. Now all fits well around the platform.
