Has anyone used the Bachmann TT with code 83 track.   I understand the bridge is code 100 and it is not possible to change the rail size.  Adjustments would need to be made where the code 83 meets the code 100.   Any comments?    Thanks.

It should not be much of a problem.  all you need to do is shim up the tracks so the top of the rail are the same.

You can also file the ends of the Code 100 rail so that it tapers into the Code 83, or you can use Code 100 on the approach / stall tracks too and connect them to the Code 83, thus keeping the transition away from the edge of the turntable.
