      Yes thanks Ed. I solved the problem of my loops by disconnection one section of track in each loops. My engines now run at the speeds they were intended to. Now all I have to so is insulate and attache wire and controller boxes for each hoop to transfer power.

      MattThe wire is not the problem. The reversing loops must be isolated. I do not know where the actual placement of the isolating gaps should be. There others here that can help you.Ed ScullinRoanoke VA

      I've been reading other responses to this and I am thinking that the problem could in fact be at my loops. They are running off the same power as the rest of the layout and it does make sense that I'm trying to feed the power back into itself through the turnouts. They are not insulated or isolated in any way. As for the speaker wire, I have no idea what gauge it is, my son gave it too me months ago and said it would be perfect for my layout. Maybe I should get different wire?
