Re: Dead track area dcc

btw.. my system is NCE Power cab too. I've replaced all my old Shinohara turnouts and the newer Atlas as the points are too loose...I like to hand throw them as I have a switching layout. Lance Mindheim has a lot of knowledge about that.

Jim.. have you tried cleaning the track? I have a bright boy at the ready... could be something as simple as that! Just a suggestion.

Just a bit off of the subject, but I am just completing the wiring of a 30' x 20' HOn3 layout using Micro Engineering flex track and turnouts.   NCE power for DCC with PSX cbs and PSX-AR auto reversers for loops.    Everything is running pretty well, but on occasion my Blackstone locomotives will stall on a random turnout, especially when moving slowly.  And often will start moving again on their own after a brief stall.  I don’t think it’s a short even though it acts like it might be.   Frog polarity is correct, in conjunction with the tortoise, and works fine 95% of the time. 

Any ideas what my issue might be?  Or is this just the nature of the beast?
