Do you have an NMRA standards Gauge? It will show if the flanges are too deep, if the flangeways are too shallow, if the wheels are too narrow or wide, if the track is out of gauge.

All are possibilities to investigate first.

Subject: [HOsteam] Micro Engineering frogs

I have installed ME Code 70 turnouts and I have just started running test trains. I started with a Bachmann Spectrum ten-wheeler, stock. The engine visibly seems to lift whenever it goes through the frogs. It's not one turnout but all of them.

Did I get a bad batch? Has anyone had to file down the flange way in the ME turnouts? How can that be done?
