I used Kato on a layout - the one issue I had was with 0-6-0s sticking on the No.4 points - the issue was the distance between the running rail and the check rails was too tight and was resolved by filing back the check rail a bit.

I found adjusting the back to back on the offending axles works. the other thing is to add an extra check rail at the throat of any point that causes issues. It pulls the axle over to ensure clean entry to the point. I've used both Peco rail lengths cut from an old flexitrack length and Slaters T section of appropriate size.
