Are there any alternatives to this direction reversing device?

It is not a typical autoreverser but is a point to point automation device.

thanks ,,, ken
This is the first Shuttle controller I've seen for DCC. I've only seen this for DC locos before.

Right, it is not a DCC auto-reverser since a DCC decoder does not care what the track polarity is. The auto-reverser just matches polarity of track at gaps to prevent a short circuit. This Shuttle unit actually puts DCC command data packets onto the rails to command the loco to Stop, the go in Reverse direction.

Nice unit and if it works as well as Tam Valley's Frog Juicers (which I use and really like for frog power and auto-reverser) then it should become popular.
