    I can think of 3 ways to stop cars at the end of a track, that you can make easily. The first is a simple mound of dirt, or ballast. Just put a pile at the end of track and glue it using whatever method you use for your track ballast. The second uses 2 cross ties (sleepers). Put the end of one loose tie under one rail of your track, with the end between two ties. The other end lies on top of the opposite rail. Cross the two ties so they form an X. The third way is to simply glue a single tie acrosss the rails. On the real track the tie would be bolted to the rails. HTH Bill
