I understand what you are saying and I have several split bus with
terminator at the end.
But I still wonder what he meant by two terminators ... one at each
end. read it again..
"you will need two of these
circuits for each bus one at each end."

A track power “bus” can easily have 2
ends. If you feed your “bus” near the middle (think of a “T”) the
“bus” now has 2 ends. Putting the booster in the middle of the
“bus” run effectively reduces your “bus” length by half. A 60-foot
“bus” becomes 2 30-foot “busses.” Many consider this as “best
practice” when designing a DCC installation.
If you put your booster at the end of the
“bus” you would only need one terminator.

Here is a little item I had
overlooked. Quoted from
"Solution for unterminated bus ends:
The name of this problem suggests the solution - terminate your bus
ends. This is simple and inexpensive to do. Just put this "RC
network " at each end of your long buses. Yes, you will need two
of these circuits for each bus one at each end."
What does he mean one at each end? A buss has one
end..... or do you need to put one near the booster also.
How many have done that?
