Re: Short Protection in Yards

I'm not quite sure why a yard should be more prone to shorts than anywhere else. As long as there is good separation between rails of opposite polarity or phase, there shouldn't be any problem. I hand lay 95% of my track and have never had a shut down due to a short during normal operation.

If you have a particular problem with a reversed polarity problem in the yard area, some more detail about the actual problem would make it easier for us to provide assistance.

Greetings,

I am in the process of setting up short circuit protection on a club-
sized layout. I will be using short circuit modules that provides
protection to 4 sub-districts.
