QUOTE Do points switch automatically when using a reverse loop module and how does this work to avoid a derailment? You can set up points to switch automatically with the new Ecos system and S88 occupancy detectors. Some other top end systems like Maerklin Central Station and the new Viessman Command centre will do this too. Other systems may need with extra equipment and software. What you would need to do is to set the S88 occupancy detector a given distance before the point and set your system to switch when a loco passes the S88 detector. This process would be independant of the reverse loop module. The reverse loop module only deals with current. If you set the Command centre correctly the point would switch automatically to avoid a derailment.
