Good day all,
I'm toying with the idea of converting over to Legacy control. We just finished getting our track down and switches (All tubular Menards track with O22 switches) - and I am currently using block wiring with sidings that are switchable, as well as a passing siding that I can switch out.
Here is an overview:
This is currently controlled with two postwar ZW's that I refurbed.
Now - I recently realized that I will need to create more isloated blocks (that I can switch on and off) in order to get more useful operation.. i.e. the Green loop needs to be isolated from siding C so I can park a train independantly of that siding.... but nevermind all that... point is - I hate wiring and have more junction blocks than I care to deal with.. which got me thinking about going to TMCC and Legacy.
My understanding is that all I need to do to run Legacy is hook the controller base into the common. Then just set all the throttles to max, turn on all the blocks and sidings - and legacy will do the rest. Obviously this will only work with a TMCC or Legacy locomotive..
Is that really all there is to it? Hook up one wire - supply power to all the track and go? It can't really be that easy..
