Hi...I know it has been a while since this topic was discussed, but, I need some help.
When I first received John's Track Signal booster, I discovered I had an issue with my Legacy base not giving enough power (other people had this issue.) I the legacy base back to Lionel and just got the base back which is now repaired.
I am still getting a red light on the track signal booster. I decided to disconnect everything and see if there a cross signal somewhere. I did get a green light when everything was disconnected from the beginning, but notice that my DZ 2001 Data Wire Driver's red light started to glow brighter with each DZ 2500 switch machine I add to the daisy chain via the Data wire.
I should also mention that have the driver connected to Dale's "Serial Booster", otherwise the data driver does not get enough juice from the Legacy base.
Now, when I unplug John's track signal booster, the red light on the data driver goes out and only lights when a command is given...which is the way I think it is supposed to "behave".
I am starting to get frustrated and am wondering if the track signal booster was a wise purchase for my layout or not.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
