Thanks Roger. Are you part of the group that runs the trains at Balboa Park? If so, I'm the guy that donated the track cleaning cars to the exhibit. I checked the Atlas On Line Store and they have a switch in stock, probably close to $125.00 with shipping. That's a killer. I'll try to repair the switch. Does the break occur between the center track and the frog? And I know, I've tried soldering the tracks before without any luck.
