CROSSING

I'm idly planning my proposed track layout and am interested to know if it's possible to incorporate a 90 degree crossing of a straight length of track? I'm planning a straight length of track running alongside a steep embankment but wish to cross this at right angles from another part of the circuit to access an 'Engine Shed' cut back into the bank

I can not see any reason why not, as we have a diamond crossing and there are plenty of those out there. So as long the track geometry has been set up correctly and if you are planning to have more than one train out at any one time that are good sight lines to see in all directions or you have some form of signalling protection for safety, then why not.

Regards

90 degree or angled, all crossings are do-able and useful. Here is a simple almost 90 degree crossing on the Beer Heights Light Railway - cropped from a photo I took at the 2012 loco week.

It can make a nice sound to.
