*** Suzie's approach is excellent for hidden loops that are just for turning trains, especially if you have a spring-switch point that does not need changing.

But...

There is actually no need to stop even with reversing switches only - and you can keep entry-direction flexibility.

two switches are used, one for main, one for the loop area.

orient the switch on the loop so it indicates polarity vs entry direction for clarity (up for enter top of loop, down for entry bottom of loop for example)

While the loco is in the loop, change the mainline switch. No need to stop.

*** it is not brand spe3cific and will work with any DCC system, but like many train brand accessories it is hellishly expensive... more than double the PSX-AR which is an excellent product.
