I have 4 isolated blocks on my layout (common outer rail, isolated center).  Each block is powered by a hammond transformer + 300w TPC, with LCS/TMCC controlling things.  I want to add DCS for controlling MTH PS trains.  

 

Is there any reason I cannot use 1 TIU channel in passive mode and route the DCS signal to all 4 blocks from that single channel?

 

Thx

If you run a feed from a single TIU output to each of 4 blocks, you will in effect connect the center rails of all 4 blocks together, which will create other problems.  I think you'll have to use 4 TIU channels, with each output feeding a different block.

 

You should probably post this oin the DCS forum.
