QUOTE (dbclass50 @ 29 Jan 2008, 07:57) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>It's simply the way the diagram looks - it's a Lenz diagram & the associated instructions do say "red to right". In practice it makes no difference at all - the important ones are the motor connections if you want the locomotive to go forwards when selecting forwards.
It matters a lot for Lenz. If you get the track connections wrong you'll screw up ABC operation.

QUOTE (LisaP4 @ 13 Sep 2005, 02:55) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>A nice little piece that. There's a little rhyme to help remember what goes where when fitting a decoder.

Red and Black, to the track,
Orange and Grey, the other way.

Makes it sound simple, which it is really.
Also
Red for Right, bLack for Left
oRange for Right and Grey... for the other one

But it doesn't rhyme :-(

Sorry, I meant the track side connections of the decoder ie the pickup connections. My response still stands. If you reverse these, Lenz ABC will be confused. At least that's my understanding of how it works.
