Re: DCC Bus
Hi Brian,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I made no statement as to whether or not the bus could or couldn't be
straight or crooked. What I did say was that the extreme ends of the bus
and track should not be connected so as to form a loop.

IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER THE THE DCC BUS IS STRAIGHT OR CROOKED AS LONG AS
THE POLARITY IS CORRECT. AS I HAVE
A STRAIGHT RUN AND A CROOKED ONE.

Technically you should not connect the loops at the far side of the layout.
In fact, (again technically), the track should be gapped at the far side of
the layout either.
You will undoubtedly hear from some folks who have looped the buses and
haven't gapped the track that are operating without problems.
While that is true for them, every layout is unique and different and it is
best to do things the right way whenever possible as that is one less thing
to fix when the layout does start acting up.
