    I am very new to model railroading. Where can I get good reference material on the in's and out's of wiring? e.g. wiring two trains, seperating a siding from the main line, etc.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    There's a book called Wiring Your Toy Train Layout by Peter Riddle that's excellent. It goes into how to use relays and other advanced stuff. An earlier edition was called Wiring Your Lionel Layout. Check your library; one or the other seems to be in a lot of libraries. If it's not there the current one sells for around $20 on Amazon. It's a pretty good investment at that price.
