the use of catch points...or even, those short and seemingly useless spurs, right by where a running line is joined, is sadly one of those details that many miss out.

they are there to prevent ANY inadvertantly loose stock gaining access to a running line.....regardless of what signalling arrangement is in place.

A simple catch point can be convincingly made with an oddment of rail or two..and does not have to function.....

or, can be as complicated as inserting a double slip turnout with one road teminating in a few inches of track.

the switching of the above might need alteration from that of the standard Peco offerings, but to me is an excuse to liven up what could be a dreary set of trackwork.
