I have recently isolated a section of track by my train station. It is about a 8 foot section. Dummy pins on each end. one drop down wire running to isolation switch. The engine is fickle when operating on that section. start up engine on powered track...it will run 2-3 feet then stop as if power was disconnected.....try to start up and it says engine not on track. add passenger car to track engine will start up right where it sits.....ran it back and and forth 4-5 feet each way several times....no problem take off lighted passenger.....stops again.
So as long as a lighted passenger car is on the section...no problem....if not all kind of problems
thoughts? thanks in advance.
PS - I am in a DCS environment.
