Question: When phasing transformers , do they need to be the same brand?
I have one loop that is 43 feet in length and it has an incline (Lionel trestles 1-10) no clue as to the degree. Currently about 35 feet is powered with a Railking 1000 and 8 feet with a Lionel CW40, The train is conventional. If need be I can change the transformers to the same brand, I just picked the CW40 because it was not being used,
Found some instructions on Phasing (OGR forum) and it does not seem to be very difficult (at least I hope not)
Reason for the block, when on the downside of the track the train moves really quick, curves are 072 so derailments are not a problem, I just wanted the train to slow down on the level part of the track in front of the station, slow not stop. I worked on the blocking all afternoon ,should have taken no more than an an hour but I did run 2 additional bus lines , red and black.
Currently the train does slow but something is not right (don.t know )
The CW 40 blinks while the train is on the flat section , hopefully phasing will correct this.
Way to much said but thanks for the advice
