Or is copper cladding not copper? As in nickel-silver rail has no silver in it & is actually copper-nickel rail.
That's what the insulating gaps are for, each sleeper has a gap cut in the copper cladding (a few strokes with a file). It gets a bit tricky in the middle as there may be more than two bits of rail on a sleeper. If you need an extra gap after assembly it's the cutting disk in the "Dremel" and a light touch as youonly want to remove copper not plastic.
Thanks for the explanation Bufferstop.
