Re: Seeking reversing section input


Tom O'Hara
 

Hi Folks...

A late contribution/suggestion: if I were doing it, I would remove the three turnouts on the red track starting above the word Westfield and moving to the northeast. That also removes the track and passing siding above Westfield, but that track could become a switchback from the blue loop at the lower left. That makes the operation more visible and manageable. Then, if you still want reversing sections, you could use either the rightmost loop (make it purple) or the blue loop at the very bottom of the picture.

Or not...

Nick,

  I -still- don't see it (a train that reverses direction and goes forward at all times).
Even trying to follow others explanations.

  Would you please do this for me/us?  Add several "letters" to the drawing
(A, B, C, etc.) and then tell us the sequence that you think produces a train
that has reversed itself.  Also please add in what you mean by "yard" (I think
I know but I want to be sure).  
  I have gone thru "running a train on the drawing with my cursor" many times
and I keep coming up with the need for a backing move in order to produce a
path that the train will be reversed.  I can do that - easily - in more than one
way.
