A tip for you though, punctuation, (ie comma's) would help to make your sentence, into a paragraph, and make it easier to read.

I had to read it three times for it to make sense!!

A tip

A tip for you could not work out why my points would some time stick when switching them so tried a drop of light oil type used in locos not to much then worked as new so when cleaning your track just do your points at the same time wonder if it has caught you out
