I was wondering if there is a Y - Shaped ramp anywhere, ie where the ball can go in either direction?

if not a ramp, then how about a y-shaped rail? would really like this for a current project. currently I have to use a diverter into two VUKs to two rails to take the ball to the two seperate directions

The Data East version of Back to the Future has a "Y" but it goes from two paths down to one path. It seems like you could make it go the other direction but I think you might want to add a diverter so the ball goes one path or the other.

"Indiana Jones & the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" has a wire cage version at the top of the table which goes from one path to two although it has a diverter in it.

The Indy table uses the other method I was thinking of, it's actually three rails and a surface
