I recently decided to change my old clunky light gantry with a new easy to service slimline version. (the old gantry can be viewed in the ACT section of tracks). I found some half round Aussie Duct at the local Office Works outlet, the beauty of this duct is that it is hinged, perfect for accessing the emitters. All I did was cut it to the correct width, drilled 3 holes for the emitters (ensuring that they lined up perfectly with the sensors set in the lanes) manufactured 2 steel supports and attached them with small angle brackets I had laying around. Installed the emitters, painted the gantry, attached to the track and voila... new slim line gantry, total cost $8 odd.
