QUOTE (normski @ 7 Dec 2007, 03:27) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>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.

***You must add an insulated rail joiner on the heel of the point (near the frog) on the maim line. One insulated joiner will fix your short circuit problem. This is exactly as per the Peco wiring instructions which you have to follow! This is no different whether its DC or DCC.

You should also add more power feeds than a single pair on a larger layout - This may not be an ussie but as your layout grows and ages, you will not get good running unless you so as rail joiners do not conduct power reliably after a while....
