Reply to "Ross Switches: How to keep non-derailing rail tips apart where they meet at the frog?"

I am building a new layout using traditional Lionel tinplate track and so I plan to use a number of the Ross Plate tubular rail switches.  I am glad I read this thread because the first ross plate switch I installed and tested had the same issue noted by the OP.  Turns out it was the  same problem, there was a screw touching both anti derail track pieces.  This is a simple fix for the ross plate switches when you find the problem- remove the offending screw.  Top picture shows the screw removed and the bottom one shows the screw in place.
