I've started using cardboard to raise the level of the ground surrounding the rails. We learn as we go, often thanks to suggestions made in this forum! I can only feasible apply the "ground raising" fix to the station area, having already completed the outlying parts of the layout.

Thanks for starting this thread Leon, a bit late to the party. I have mostly Unitrack & up to now have only had two controllers happily running two ovals with one crossover made  up with "6" points.
  Also thanks to all contributions, I am certain they will be helpful for me in the near future
       regards Derek.

Derek, keep your eye out! I'll be needing much more help before I'm finished, and I am learning (a bit) so maybe I'll be able to help someone else. I'm still grappling with rail electrification. I'm still finding rails electrified that shouldn't be (according to my plan and expectation). Still, as a photo will show (coming soon), I've been able to move my trains to the right locations, but only through lots of trial and error.
