Three Rail Layouts


Hello Allen:

Your website asks to let you know if anyone is running a three rail layout. I have since 2002, it has taken 3 major re-wirings to work well with DCC, and an optional switch to Lionel AC. The biggest problem I have is with the Auto-Reversers on the booster. If I have a common short the Auto-Reverser kicks in and the polarity is wrong at the next gap. I've tried to turn the option off, but it doesn't seem to help. So I have rewired again, with manual reverse switches so I can cancel out the Auto-Reverser.

I'm happy to answer any other questions.

Thanks, Carl.

PS: Lionel is not just for Christmas Trees.
