Hello people new to the sight so here is my first post and problem.Brought a prodigy 2 at warley the weekend and a dcc ready class 66 i've since fitted a tcs m1 decoder and all seems fine,occasional stuter around one bend but i can live with that,now i have a simple very large loop 25 foot by 10ft its in the loft now to this i've added a sid
ing.The problem is when i manually flick the point the train stops! and i just get a buzzing noise every so often and the train slightly moves? now i'm useless at wiring and haven't a clue really so any help appreciated. Its 00 gauge ,peco code 100 track and streamline points. I'm sure its due to wiring but i haven;'t a clue!! thx

the train is on the main track and yes they are live frog points which i was told to buy for dcc! so basically all the points will have to be wired then? i thought this was the hole point of dcc to stop all those dang wires!! the decoder is a tcs m1-uk. Can you explain it again about the point wiring as i'm confused wiring and polarity baffles me thats why i went dcc not dc!! good job i only have 1 oval down at the moment then?? oh thanks for the replies.
