AutoReverser for DCC

layout diagram for forum.jpg Please see rough track diagram above which shows the essential bits to allow me to ask my question. There is more track, some already built and other bits not. The gaps BD, CE, FG, KL, MN & PQ are isolated track joins. This is because the turnouts are Peco Insulfrog...

Re: DCC - Main controllers and accessory decoders.

The 6 connections on the SEEP are 2 to carry the pulse to change the point & a return and then one for incoming power to go down one of 2 remaining wires to lights on a layout diagram to indicate either a closed or thrown point. Won't that work? Polarity change isn't an issue as I am using insul...

DCC - Main controllers and accessory decoders.

I am building an N gauge layout in my loft. I’ve wired it for DCC, but not having chipped my locos, I am running one loco at a time using a DC controller. I have fitted Peco Insulfrog points so I could have isolated sections before a point to prevent trains ploughing into a point set against them. T...
