45mm Breakout!

Having two different gauges is not without its trials and my 45mm layout was confined inside the 32mm layout.  For some time I have wanted to expand the 45mm track but this meant crossing the 32 on the level as there was not the distances to build an up and over crossing. As an experiment I diagonally fibreglassed a piece of Peco SM32 track to a length of Playmobil RC plastic track having put a converter in from LGB.  Then carefully removed the flange space with a grinder wheel without the grinder.  So far the ride across both tracks is quite smooth.  If it works well then one day I will get one of these fabulous custom point makers to make me a Peco SM32/G Scale crossing.
