Re: Walthers lighted passenger cars
for the information.
could make the reversing section longer than your longest
train would be best, but I figure you have a limit to keep.
Here are my suggestions:
1) Insulate the trucks from the car frame, if not already.
in a short block at each end of the reversing block, a bit
larger than the passenger trucks. Just let this be dead track,
Your locomotives should be able to bridge these new blocks, and still allow enough space for the passenger trucks to cross with out shorting.
The other option is to insulate all the passenger car wheels. I know metal wheels roll better, could you switch to plastic side frames? Or perhaps insulate the axles from both wheels.
What you don't want is the wheels connecting the rails at the gap when the current is reversed.
Hope this helps.
