    Does anybody have any ideas how I could pave over my RR switches in a way that they will still work? I want to use Woodland Scenic's road system for my layout.announce1

    It can be done Justin but the section between the rail that switch will have to move with the rail.
    What are you using ordinary peco switches?

    The area between the points might have to be done some other way. If you want the asphalt effect, a piece of plastic or cardboard can be cut to fit (clear of any flanges and where the points move) and painted to match.
    Some places used bricks in these cases as it was easier to maintain the moving bits. This could be modelled with some surplus brick sheet.

    I plan on using ME #6 switches.
