LC 0-8-0 climbs out of Fastrack 048 switch

I have filed the inside edge of the point END to a chisel edge, but the 0-8-0 still climbs up the point like a ramp wanting to head straight instead of making the turn.  Not happening with the other locos or the cars, just the 0-8-0 LC engineClimb and Derail.

I could file the inside edge like a wedge thus eliminating the "ramp" on the point, but then if it doesn't work I have to order a new point so has anyone had this experience and found a solution?

I have a wheel gauge on order to check that and there is no way to add a straight ahead of the switch on this layout.   The curve ahead of the 048 switch is an 048 15 degree curve.
