If you use a bridge rectifier it is very simple to wire, just connect the + and - terminals to your reverse loop, and the ~ terminals to the rest of the layout. You will be limited in that you can only drive the train in one direction around the loop, and you will have to remember to flick the reverse switch on the controller while the train is in the 5', but it really is that simple and there is themn no need to stop.

If using the DPDT switch you will have to make sure that the switch is in the correct position before entering the loop, stop the train in the loop, flick the switch and reverse the controller, then restart the train. It is all a bit of a faf really.
