    Hi James,  Just in case you may be getting confused here, the 0.6mm pcb suggested in the instructions is used to raise the rail height above the sleepers to the same level as plastic chairs.  You could of course also equally use brass or NS strip.  It does also hold the crossing rails in place, so you can jig build the crossing off the layout first – again, much like the prototype.  Once you’ve built the crossing, it is then laid onto your choice of sleepers – I use ply and superglue it – and you then add cosmetic chairs after.  Hope that helps if you were confused!  Cheers, Paul
