Re: Scratch built diamonds
Forgive me folks but that’s not a crossover...that’s a crossing. A crossover requires two parallel tracks and two
turnouts. By the way Peco makes much nicer crossings.

Lee, why not build your crossover with isolated corners where opposite rails intersect.
No need for a reverser or juicer. No problem with power districts.
Look at the design of an Atlas crossover: http://www.atlasrr.com/Images/Track/Trackphotos/0176.JPG

I fully understand his diagram, but on our club layout the two tracks that cross are on different power districts. Will this be a problem in hooking up an auto reverse circuit or a frog juicer?
Thanks much in advance.
