Although Widnes uses Peco track we always remove the mechanism, I cannot understand why some modellers build really nice looking layouts and leave a big plastic square at the toe of the point

We leave the tie-bar in place, trimmed to the minimum, then remove the rest of the mechanism and associated mouldings, these are replaced with some suitable plastic, gently scribed to simulate the wood grain and then painted. The point directly in front of the 57/3 has been so treated and although the check rails are obviously Peco in the photo its not so obvious in the flesh.
