    I have finished laying track and am ready to start making a roadway across a 5' x 8' table. The road will have to cross two tracks. I recently purchased several Bachman Grade Crossings on e-bay, but they seem to be only for one track. At one end of the table I have one track to cross. The Bachman Grade Crossing seems to be fine for this. Short of cutting the grade crossing in half somehow, I am at a loss to find a way for the roadway to cross two tracks. I use cork roadbed. Any ideas?

    I made my own crossings from styrene. My track is code 83, so the styrene is either .080" thick, or built-up from thinner pieces to a thickness of .080". For track of different codes, use styrene of a thickness similar to or slightly lower than that of the rail.
    Here's a Link to some more info and some photos, too.

    Thanks, Wayne. I'll give it a try.
