QUOTE (zmil @ 8 Aug 2008, 14:57) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi All
I asked this question of TCS regarding powering some functions with the blue wire and some by half wave.(see below)
now I have another Question
Powering the white wire from the red (half wave)
and Powering the yellow with the Black(the other half wave)
is it permissible?
Regards Zmil

***You already have your answer in the TCS email, however my question is why bother?

The chassis is always to one or the other not both and I can see no reason to complicate life in the way you propose ever.

As to half wave, its mostly a lighting issue and its (almost) always better to dump the bulbs in EU loco's and replace with LEDS...especially with HO scale, and without doubt always better practice to wire the locos properly as per DCC recommendations.... which also gives better lighting control in the end.

Why do you want to compromise and complicate things so much - I am quite curious?
