Re: PECO Code 100 24 Degree Crossing: Shorting Issue

Brian Eiland

OK found that posting here,..

Yesterday I discovered a problem with some of my NEW Peco crossings. Four of my new Pecos had problems,...2 had plastic joiners in a few of the tracks had 'dips' in them, and 2 of them had little tip projections into the flangeway.

These were discovered when I experimenting with running a model 6 axle tender over them. Granted the flanges on these wheels were ever so larger than standards these days, but it was just enough to cause them to bump way up in the air as they encountered these blips in the flangeways. And I double rechecked the gauge on these wheel sets, and they were right on.
