Re: Non DCC friendly Shinohara turnouts - how do you rework

My guess based on the OP is that the gluing resulted from ballasting. Are you suggesting there is no need to glue ballast, as well? I'm sincerely interested in your alternative solutions, if that's the case. The major reason my present, soon-to-be dismantled layout has no ballast is for this reason; we had a strong suspicion we had a move in our not-to-distant future and might have to gut the layout. If you have a ballasting technique that permits efficient removal and reuse, I'd like to hear it; about the only thing we ever came up with was masking tape on the bottom of the turnouts, sticky side up; that still leaves a lot of mobile ballast, which inevitably migrates to the point of maximum interference.
