A great piece of track of course with all motors concealed i have a Kato Scissors cross over and would like some advice how to incorporate it in a DCC layout such and where to place feed to the track and isolation, is a reversing unit needed for it ?
Also has anyone replaced the switch provided with something else such as a toggle SPDT ?

Many thanks.

I use DPDT centre off biased both way toggle switches - you push it one to change the point one way, the other to change it the other way. Wired up as a polarity changeover. maplin part FH07H

There's also a short FAQ on the Digitrax website. http://www.digitrax.com/kb/index.php?a=720
You can make your own switches for Kato Unitrack by following the instructions on this DCCWiki. http://www.dccwiki.com/Turnout_Motors

Poliss,

Good information many thanks
saved the links to my favorites for reference when doing the scissors crossover, have my eye on the Kato automatic crossing as well
