  • Thanks for the input Greg. The diodes and resistors were cheap and now I have them both so I will use both now that I know how to use them properly. Like you said "cheap insurance". I'll only have four tracks total on my DCC line like this then I'll have three tracks on my DC catenary line.

  • In my last test (which worked) I hooked a wire from one of my buses to the SPST switch, then a wire from the switch to a resistor, resistor to anode of LED and a wire from cathode to other bus. The LED lit as expected after flipping the switch. I then put the rectifier between the cathode and the other bus as I saw in other diagrams. It all still worked as expected. Since the LED...

  • That makes sense as to why the diagram I saw had the diode "downstream" of the LED. I have all the parts and now I know how they should go together. I did a quick test and everything g looks like it should. Thanks all for your help! I'll post pics of the control board I'm making as soon as it is done.

  • Do you add it to the ultrasonic bath or just use it directly on the gears and motors? I assume directly since it is a quick dry solution.

  • Sounds good. I have a Marklin 8893 which works well enough but I am going to install a Digitrax DZ126T decoder in it (like I did with my Orient Express loco) and want to make sure everything is cleaned and properly lubed first.
