Re: Long AR with a turnout in the middle.


Don Vollrath
 

A turnout in the middle of an AR section by itself is not necessarily a problem. If it feeds a stub track simply make the turnout and the stub track part of the AR section. If the turnout leads to/from another section of fixed polarity track ... will your lighted passenger train be using it for an entrance/exit to the AR section? If not, simply isolate that diverging path but keep the turnout itself as part of the AR section.
If the long passenger train will be using that shortened path, find a way to also make that path part of the AR section and be long enough to accommodate the entire train to the next exit point. Use a relay to reconnect some additional track to be part of the AR section when that path is selected (?)
