Re: Dead track area dcc

Is this in a section of plain track, part of a turnout or crossing or has rail joiners at one or both ends?
Seems likely you have a high resistance contact to that section – looks OK on a multimeter voltage range, but drops when any current flow is attempted.
Useful tool - auto test light – basically a 12 volt incandescent lamp in a housing with a probe at one end and a clip lead at the other. Takes enough current to find this sort of issue.

How do you explain a dead track area when the voltmeter reads normal?
