Reply to "Is This Placement of a TVS Correct?"

As I understand TVS protection, it depends on where a voltage spike originates and where your train is positioned at the time. And given that the electric current is moving around (taking the shortest route to your engine), you can't be 100% sure of when your train is protected. That's why having the TVS inside the engine, just before the delicate electronics is the best place for them.

However, it's better to have them setup as you show them in your photos than not as this will protect your trains with some percentage of probability.
