Apologies if this is in the wrong section, as I guess the question crosses a fine line between handbuilt track and ready to lay.
I need to add a very short length of check rail to Peco's new Code 75 bullhead flexi track and was wondering what would be the best (easiest?) way to do this.
The solution that immediately occurs to me is as follows...
Using a scalpel blade, remove the chairs from one side of the flexi track and then with the help of a gauge, glue Exactoscale check rail chairs in place for the required length.
This in itself raises a couple of questions. If this is the easiest solution, what would be the best glue to use to bond the new chairs to the existing plastic sleepers? Also, bearing in mind that the curve will be in the region of 800mm radius, is there anything I need to be careful of with regard to setting the gauge?
Also, if there is another way of doing this, I'd be delighted to know.
For reference, the model will hope to recreate this...
The check rail is visible for a very short distance before the tunnel mouth and the effect will need to continue for approx. 200-300mm inside the tunnel.
