What part of bridge is the alignment track

alignment tracks are the part of a rotating bridge that is where the tracks meet back together , this requires an alignment rail or train might derail , as this joint needs to remain movable so there is a gap there , typically it looks like a third rail spaced just inside the outer rail , this grabs and guides the wheel "toe" and centers the wheel onto outer rail , this feature requires frequent maintence as it does wear , as was evidenced few years ago by a bulk train derail in Louisiana as this was exactly what failed after crossing was hit by barge and train derailed

Piolar Express front pivot hangs and causes derailment

There is a design flaw with the spring loaded pivot. If the wheels canter even the slightest, like on a turn, the mechanism slide locks up. I solved this problem with a medium white lubricant used for fishing reels called lubriplate. Make sure you lube both sides of the slide. Other medium consistency lubes should work just as well.

When the train is heading around the track, it stops on the curve, and will only start again, when you turn it off and back on??? Does this on both ends when turning the corner? Can you halp??? Tha

Check to see if the train is lifting off the track on the curve and the roller is not making contact with the center rail. Run the engine alone slowly and try both forward and backward.

In have a spst 12v lighted toggle switch that i use in my hobby i cant keep it lighted i use it to shut off the power to sideing tracks on my ho model train. new to wireing it hase 3 blades pos acc neg ....

Hi Gi Joe. I am assuming that you are wiring this on the DC side of the train power supply. So, the negative from the power supply goes to one of the rail connections. From this run a wire to the negative of the switch. The positive of the power supply runs to the positive of the switch. The ACC of the switch runs to the positive connection of the rail. The switch breaks and makes the positive connection to the rail. The power supply is 12 volts I also assume. The light should now go on when the switch is set to ON and suppling power to the rails. The negative of the power supply provides a return so that the light goes on and the train can run.
Please leave a comment if this helps.

We just got the Hogwarts express and it will not complete 1 loop without derailing or the cars becoming uncoupled.

Well you should probably check the radius of your curves. The Hogwarts Express has a minimum curve of O36 and on a tighter radius curve it will derail. I have found that the Hogwarts train runs better on fasttrack than standard O. You should also make sure the track is flat because if it isn't completely flat it derails. The train isn't designed well so it derails but if you run it slow you shouldn't have a lot of problems.

Kato locomotive doesnt run. Goes for a short time with spray of contact cleaner then stops

That means that your track is dirty. Your locomotive is picking up dirt from the track, which builds up. on the wheels. Use a track cleaner NOT alcohol... the alcohol does leave a residue on the track after it dries.
