    Reversing Section Quick Question

    Good point. Can a train going around the entire outside loop (circle) go through reversing section successfully even though it doesn't need the polarity switched? So do you know if that is the only reverse section I need? Thanks for helping.

    How to wire reversing section with yard

    How to wire reversing section with yard

    I know there have been quite a few threads covering this topic but I never really got a full answer after looking through all of them.
