Grand looking layout. As for your problem turnout it appears that you have correctly identified that it spans a joint.
As a rule of thumb, “thou shalt not place thy turnout undereth a mountain.” Able to shift the turn out placement?

I grew up within walking distance of here, its amazing to think that this little shed replaced what was the massive Thornaby shed.

Hi Chops,

Well noticed -it's less of a joint and more of just the next cork tile - but it is a smidgeon higher. The photo exaggerates it. I'm going to lift the point this weekend and see if it is distorted at the frog as the elevation change not evident on the running rail. Or perhaps some gremlin crept under the frog at tracklaying time.

If its just the slight difference between the tiles, a quick bit of sanding and we should be off to the next problem.

Thanks for the comment.

Ned.
