This is the main part for the PF Train Track Switch Points.

Since there was no activity on parts tracker to the train track switches for years, I took a look at the 9V switch 2859c00. but I decided to start from scratch.

I based the design on the standard PF train tracks 53400.dat and 53401.dat, designed a reference track for the connection points and then it took me about 2,5 weeks to complete the design for this first submit.

There are 2 issues I would like ask to the reviewers:

I changed the level from the inner rail stage from position 2.5 LDU to 4 LDU, because in this part that face matches to several other faces on the level of a usual plate underside, which is always 4 LDU in other parts. Question is, if we should update the standard parts 53400.dat and 53401.dat to that level also?

I did not yet complete all conditional lines on the curved rails. Do you have a hint how to do this more or less automatically?
Edger2 seems not to recognice all lines. Lines between subparts and normal faces are missing and some others also.

Edger2 can only create correct condlines between 2 surfaces if these surfaces have 2 common vertices.
Edger2 in LDPE will sometimes avoid creating condlines near rect primitives. A usable trick is to remove
all type 5 lines (condlines) and then generate a completly new set of condlines.
Make sure that you include and expand subfiles when you generate condlines.

It is recommended that you only use Rectifier (to create rect-primitives in LDPE or DatHeader) after you have created your condlines.
DatHeader is a much better tool in the post process clean up of your file, than Rectifier in LDPE.
