I have several accessories that depend on an insulated track section to activate, (semaphore signal, gateman, etc). The hot connection for these is to a terminal block, which is connected to my postwar ZW terminal B. The common connections are of course the outside rails of the insulated track sections.
Now the problem ... I just changed from using the ZW "A" post for track power, to a new Powerhouse 180 (through a Legacy Powermaster). These accessories do not operate now, since the outside rails are no longer connected in any way to the ZW to complete the circuit. My 022 switches are also powered by a connection to the ZW "C" post, and these now do not function either.
How can I fix this? Can I just run a wire from a ZW "U" post to a lockon on the track? Could I run a wire from a ZW "U" post to the "U" track power out connection on the Legacy Powermaster? Would this interfere with the track power which is now coming from the Powerhouse 180?
