Reply to "MTH Realtrax Switch Issues"

Hey guys...still struggling a bit with a couple of switches...we have 2 left hand switches where our MTH Norfolk Southern locomotive still gets stuck going thru the switches...I identified the issue but not sure what to do...the front wheel truck goes thru smoothly but when the rear wheel truck gets in there the rear pickup roller drops down in the gap shown in the photo and gets stuck...usually it powers thru it but makes a horrible noise and jumps around...I've played around with making sure the switches are level, etc. and sometimes seems to help but then after a few runs thru starts doing it again...this doesn't seem to happen with other locos and doesn't happen on any of the other switches on the layout (left or right).  Anyone else ever have this problem...any ideas how to fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.Switch Issue
