Re: Offset Rail Gapping

There is momentary shorts between blocks as metal wheels (Or Locos) cross the gaps.  

Is this true?  If the polarity and phase is the same for two blocks there should not be any shorts in my opinion.  If this was so, a train with all metal wheels would cause a large number of shorts to occur, and if a train stopped with a set of metal wheels bridging two blocks, the short would be constant.  I have not seen this.
