Sector Plate Entry Road

This photo shows the sliding end of the sector plate with my loco 4811 at the entry/exit to the scenic portion of the layout. The plate is moved into position using the handle seen in the forground of the photo. I've found there is no real need for fancy position locking devices or the use of melamine or other easy sliding surfaces. In O-scale, with bigger wheels than in the smaller scales, the trains are a little more forgiving and there's more than enough friction to keep the plate in position having mdf surfaces.
