Pretty self explanatory. I wanted this piece for my boys’ train track but the only place you can find it is in a $40 expansion pack. This was easily made out of a piece of 1/2” Oak and a 1/4” straight router bit.

Next I’m thinking of making the elevated 2 level 4 way stop.

You get started making parts for this Toy Train and you just may never come out of the shop! LOL I made my Grandaughter a wooden Ferry Boat with tracks in the deck to roll those trains on. If I can “borrow” it back; I’ll post it.

Neat, I really like being able to upgrade my kids toys. They really appreciate that I made just for them.

That’s cool and I would like to see that elevated 4way if you ever decide to take in on.

I’m still working at perfecting the ‘pin’ part of the track. Paul really likes the prototype straight piece of track I made, so I may just borrow your idea! Thank you.

God, it is so confusing! Which way do you turn it?
