    Can anyone point me to a site that has a circuit for automatically controlling a reverse loop(s)? I know that you can buy this from some manufacturer out there (Circuitron?), but I recall that it retails for around $50 CDN +/- which is too rich for my blood right now.

    Thanks

    You might check Kalmbach and Carstens publishing companies. They both publish a number of books with electronic and electrical circuits. I think at least one of the books they publish has a circuit for automatic reversing, but I don't know which title.

    MRC makes one for around $30. Can be wired to control more than one reversing loop (be careful about running trains through both loops at the same time).
