Has Anyone Cut Kato Unitram Plates In Half To Make Grade Crossings?

Recommended Posts

Hello 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?

I have cut them to use as single track tram track but the principle would be the same. They are just styrene and cut easily with a razor saw.
