Reverse Loop Track Wiring Dcc - like conventional dc wiring the reversing loop or track section must be electrically isolated from the rest of the railroad even with digital mand control dcc this can be done with plastic rail joiners or simply by cutting gaps in both rails at each end of the reverse track well i have my layout plan and am working on building it now but i need some help in wiring my reversing loops for dcc as dcc is all new to me if you look at the plan it is one big loop at each end of the loop is a section that will allow you to reverse direction on the loop so i need some help model railroader is the world s largest magazine on model trains and model railroad layouts we feature beginner and advanced help on all model railroading scales including layout track plans model railroad product reviews model train news and model railroad forums the reverse loop module switch changes the polarity of the track.

when trains enter and leave the loop the wiring of reverse loops is easy with unitrack using dcc wiring reversing tracks reverse loops or wyes is a mystery to some modelers so they avoid using them on their layouts and miss out on the benefits of having a reverse loop or wye track if reverse loops and wyes are controlled by manual switches the train operator must flip them in proper sequence if you don t have a simple reverse loop or wye but you do have a track arrangement where a reverse polarity will take place you may have to buy another booster or an automatic reverse section controller which is made by most of the dcc manufacturers dcc users there are automatic reverse loop controllers available these require no intervention by the user other than changing the point there is no need to stop the train the auto reverser takes care of switching the polarity in use you will probably.

i also have 3 sidings in the reverse loop section and they are not isolated as i run dcc so it doesn t matter how the polarity is on the track each loco responds to the direction on the throttle not the track wiring a reversing loop or turn around track may seem plicated but if you take one step at a time and check your work you will have a fully automated reverse loop and worry free train operation
