I bought a set a couple of weeks ago, and i am having some problems with the switches. I am having problem when i am turning of the main line. When it turns the engine goes over the switch fine. But the first and second car always get re-routed to go straight Angry Angry Angry. In other words the rim slides over and catches the peice of plastic that makes the train go staraight instead of turning. if someone could tell me a way to fix this that would be great. Thanx :- Cheesy

Dear dj,
Check the gauge of the wheels on the cars that derail.
Also, gently filing any rough spots on the points may help.
Have fun!
