Got back into the swing this weekend. Trying to settle some track down in "permanent" place on the layout, getting those angles better. The corner of the track near Langwith Junction provided a key element in terms of wiring as with so many converging lines it was inevitable that I had mixed polarities at more than one point. This has hopefully been easily solved with the addition of a PSX-AR now made by DCC Specialities. It is fairly simple to install, two wires for the input power attached from the main bus, and then up to three outputs which go to isolated sections of track.

As can be seen I screwed this to underneath the baseboard and ran track wires up through one of my access holes. At the moment I have attached two auto reverse sections, but will certainly have need for all three. I can see the need for possibly another one of these once everything is in place. Pretty good value from Digitrains in the UK for GBP 38.

Seems to work as expected, instantly switching incorrect polarities to the correct rails, without missing a beat as far as the trains are concerned.

Now I will concentrate on getting the actual junction railwork down so I have somewhere to park the rolling stock...
