fastrack 221/2 crossover

Hello , I have a fastrack crossover that a couple of older (early 70s I think)  lionel cars will bind and derail when passing through it . My newer cars seem to work ok - the wheelsets seem a little wider.  Is there any info on the years of production to look for short of measuring the wheels ? thanks 

 

 

 

 

Original Post

I have a 22.5 degree crossover, and some of my cars "wobble" when they go over it. I have not had derailment issues, however my speed over the crossover is typically less than 15 SMPH. Some engines can "stall' on the crossover if the speed is below 8 SMPH.

If you can isolate the problem to a few cars, you can always change the trucks to a style that does not give you any problems.

Good luck: JoeK
