    Can you clarify what the problem is?
    1 You have a piano wire from the servo to the turnout and the train is hitting it?

    Same, they remain unglued until ballasting (sometimes 20 years later). I use 1/3 Elmers on the ballast. When I replaced one once it was just a matter of soaking the ballast and waiting half an...
