I have two main lines that are controlled separately by power.  If I want track 1 up only, I power it up...If I want track 2 up, I power it up only, and so on...from the same transformer (ZW)..  Now I have added two fastrack switches, one to go to track 2 from track 1 and from track 2 to track 1..  Now when I power up track 1, track 2 comes up two.  I want to keep both lines separate ...so do I undo the small wire under the switches 072, or is there any other way to keep both lines separate...So when I want to run a train from track 1 to track 2, I would have to power up both lines, and thats ok.....thanks

To keep your loops electrically separate you should unplug one end of the jumper on the fitter piece (that short track section).  And, yes, if you want a train to go from track 1 to track 2 you will need to power up both loops.

thanks Dan, does it matter which end I unplug of that little wire?....J

I completely removed the jumpers and all my crossovers work fine (unless, of course, I forget to power up the second track ).
