      This is easy. Just gap *both* rails on each of the turnout loop rails (4 gaps). Connect an Autoreverser to the loop rails. (DCC Specialties, Tam Valley Juicer, etc. but NOT a Digitrax as it is old school mechanical relay - low tech).

      If you use a märklin turnout, nothing needs to be done. If you use an MTL or Rokuhan turnout, you need to connect the turnout's control to the Autoreverser to change the turnout direction (cannot run thru the points whereas with the märklin turnouts, you can !

      Hi,
      Is there a way to have DCC automatically change swithc postions using some sort of detector?

      I have 2 reverse loops that require some sort of auto change capability.

      Thanks
      Cliff
