I don't have problems ALL the time, but once in a while I have a question: While joining, soldering and gluing track to cork roadbed using silicone sealer w/extra strong adhesion, I found a joint that must have slipped....the two track-ends are WITHIN the confines of the rail joiner, but with a space of about 1/16" .
I would like to know how critical that would be for running trains over it, and what would be the best way to correct it without UNDOING all my hard work. I was thinking of just several layers of solder and filed smoothly to form the rail contour. Or, placing a tiny piece of rail, carefully, in that opening and soldering it in. Or, just leave the darned thing alone!
Gosh I hate when these things happen because I tend to lose sleep over them!
