John, I think you're almost there.  Filing a bit more off of the entire length of the tapered part of the outside point should fix it.  Here are some pics of one of the O48 RH switches I've modified for this scenario for an outbound curve leading directly into the points end of a switch.

Oh, OK Steve.

So the filed area is actually rounded the way it looks in the top photo instead of beveled.  Just ordered a set of points (and a few other things) just in case.  Will do that in the AM tomorrow.

Thanks as always,


EDIT:  Didn't order the points.  They are unavailable.
