Recently completed a shelf layout around home. Run a new mth diesel engine with a Dcs remote commander.
Soon will be getting a steam engine with psngr car set. I will not be running both at the same time. Well, only when I change which set to run.
So instead of having to remove one set, and put other online, plan to add a side track with switch. Trying to find out if the side track will be without power when switch is thrown back to mainline, or if I need to just gap it, then power the section of track with a relay while I make the change between the 2 sets.
