QUOTE (ashleyh @ 4 Nov 2006, 13:49) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>The second point is that there doesn't appear to be any obvious way of cutting power to the track other than by unplugging the unit. Pressing the red stop button stops all the locos, but the track is still live. Bit worrying this, as I like to use the safe practice of cutting the power before adding or removing locos from the track. To be fair, this could be remedied by installing a DPDT switch in the power lead.

I must admit I was certainly going towards the route of the hornby select unit until I read this, if track power is not cut then how do the locos manage to stop? Can one ever create dead track for programming decoders and how do you know that the track is live?

Thanks for the response, have you actually tested the track with a voltmeter when the stop button has been triggered?

As long as the system seems to bring all the locos to a stop then that'll do.
