    Reversing unit question.

    Has anyone used one of TCH technologies reversing units or any other reversing unit to accomplish this? It says it can be used to make a reversing loop automatic. I have purchased 2 units and can not figure out the wiring. Im running conventional 2 rail DC. The engine will go into the loop but will not exit do to the polarity change. I have had atlas switches hooked up in the past and it was working, but wanted something automatic. Is this even possilble with DC wiring?

    Is the unit intended for DCC rather than DC operation? To get out of the reversing loop you need something to change direction on the main line and I don't know of anything that will do that, unless you have a very simple layout and some relays.
