Re: Where to isolate on large loops and wye

The manual for the NCE command station will tell you to connect that “booster common” to one of the screws on the NCE Power Pro (Command station and booster).

Thanks to all for your help.  I’ve been busy laying track. I also have a PM42 with breakout board to split my layout into 3 or 4 districts.  In the instructions it says the third wire should be a ground wire to a booster.  Since my command station is a 5amp NCE the booster is built in. I don’t know where I should ground it.  It mentions the third wire and Digitrax system. Is it  not needed with NCE?
