There's a simple answer, I'm afraid - they're very coarse indeed, meaning they have flangeways which , if not quite the size of the Grand Canyon are certainly significantly larger than normal Streamline.

The only real solution is "shimming" the checkrails to narrow the gap:

QUOTE if there is an issue with wheelsets picking the 'wrong route' at the nose of the crossing....then a simple solution would be to glue a thin sliver of plasticard to the inside of the check rail.[between the check rail and its adjacent stock rail]...this will tend to 'pull' the wheelset towards the appropriate stock rail, away from the nose of the crossing.

I really don't like Setrack I'm afraid
