You could try laying them out on the floor like I do and just start experimenting with different configurations. Sometimes it's quicker than trying to draw everything out.

Here's a couple of ideas for using a crossing in a yard.

That's fine with me. I'm over it unless someone else brings it up.

I ran across this site to buy, sell, or trade trains. Don't know if others have seen it. I didn't know about the site.

I've often cut off a corner of a piece of track I want to butt up to a turnout. While not pretty, I use a pliers to twist the end part off, then twist the side back and forth until it breaks. Then file it down if necessary.
I don't do it to the turnouts because they cost more. I'd rather screw up a single piece than a turnout.

What started was after I posted this question "Perhaps "D" misunderstood?" and you got smart with me.

Jward - Yep. I'm a 61 year old kid who had his first model train when he was 4. I did listen (read) what Donaldon said and that's why I pointed out his mistake (as I have done over the many years on this forum to others who have posted bad scoop).

Donaldon - You're the one who doesn't get it.
Dennis said "1. The controllers for the #6 remote crossover turnouts do not seem to have a way to mount them to the side of the table. Any suggestions?". Then you launch into this thing about taking them apart or buying someone else's.
If you knew what you were talking about, you wouldn't have said that. All I did was point out that I thought you misunderstood what he was talking about in your post. Even Jerry knew you were wrong, but he didn't have the cojones to question your mistaken interpretation of what Dennis said. Now you and Jerry are sucking up to each other and acting like I was wrong when it was your screw up that started this all.
If you don't want your posts scrutinized on Bachmann's forum, then don't post them. Why would I want to contact you directly anyway? I read it on Bachmann, I'll post it on Bachmann. I don't give a crap whether you follow up on your posts or not.
I did click your name today just to see if your email was available. Even then I wouldn't have emailed you anyway. You posted on the board - you got the response on the board. Deal with it.
If you want to think I'm maligning go ahead. I could care less. I think you deserve maligning now.
As far as using Bachmann stuff, I don't read all your posts. I just pick out threads that interest me.
"Why not just use someone else's turnouts and the switch machines of your choice?" - You said it, I didn't. That's a direct quote from you, even though that wasn't his problem.
Now, why don't you and Jerry find a nice warm place to cuddle up and you can cut some malodorous cheese together.

ACY - Thanks for the clarification. In looking at the color and black and white one (the bottom two pics.) together, I can see there are differences.

Donaldon - By the way, when I clicked on your name, it said email hidden, so I couldn't ask you directly.
867  Discussion Boards / HO / Re: Just wondering on: July 13, 2011, 01:33:58 PM
Donaldon  and ACY - The item in the first picture ACY posted is made for EZ Track.
Right after his post, you started talking about caulking and spackle and stained lumber. So, I'm thinking, why in the world would he have to go to all this trouble when ACY's pictured item is made for EZ Track.
ACY even said "The item pictured should work with some modification of it and/or the roadbed." Yet, the item is specifically made for EZ Track.
It was only after that, that ACY posted the correct picture.

Donaldon - My original question was "Perhaps "D" misunderstood?" when Jerry decided that you didn't misunderstand. So, if you didn't misunderstand, then you were passing bad scoop. Perhaps Jerry should have allowed you to say whether or not you misunderstood rather than comment for you. I took it from Jerry's post that you are never wrong and I shouldn't question your post.
I knew you would join the thread posts sooner or later to straighten it out as to what your thoughts were. I couldn't call you up and say "There's a thread you need to look at."
As it turns out, you did misunderstand, as you readily admit. Dennis did say "controller", not "switch machine".
I was simply trying to clarify what was meant by your post.
When you said to Dennis, "Why not just use someone else's turnouts and the switch machines of your choice?", you were trying to discourage him from using the Bachmann turnouts. All because you misunderstood the question.
Now, if you want to start disrespecting my family and my upbringing, we can go to war on here.

I had been trying to count the pieces of the pic I showed. I figured 2 pieces of roadway, two vertical poles, two snap-on gates, two snap-on cross bucks and 4 pieces of green plastic "ground". As I just broke out the specs and looked closer at the pic, I see that the green pieces are just pieces carpet or something like that, because one corner has an edge sticking up.

I see now. I just looked under EZ Track accessories.
