I've been having a problem with my dummy Alco diesel hitting its rear truck on a new (to me) 1122 switch I obtained from eBay. I compared it to my other switches and it appears to be missing the chrome insert piece that looks kind of like a skewed "X" near the frog rail.
Are all 1122's supposed to have this piece, could its absence be the reason my engine is hitting in that area? Also, if it is missing, where would I find a this part? I checked eBay and couldn't find one but then again I don't know what it's called. Thanks.
