Reply to "AtlasO #6059 Uncoupling Track Guide"

Stewart,

 

I also use my uncoupling track's magnet as the closest point to the switch I can park a car/engine without fouling the other line.  While I use Gargraves/Ross track, I do use the Atlas uncoupling tracks because they are shorter and cheaper than Gargraves and worked well on my last layout.  Because I use #4 and #5 switches, I need a 7" straight section between the switch and uncoupler to get the required clearance, so I shouldn't have this dead spot problem.  But after reading your comments above, I think I'll need to check my engines to be sure.  Thanks for the informative post.
