Title: right and left turnouts
Post by: mkinder69 on April 11, 2011, 07:17:55 PM
I am new to this and I have a right and a left turnout on my track creating two ovals, but I cant get my train to go past the second turnout. Do I need a rerailer section to power each loop seperatly?

If it is N scale and they are Bachmann or other power routing turnouts, then you will need feeders to go to the track after the second turnout to power the track.

mk69-

We need more information to answer your question. Gauge?
Existing connection(s)? Type of power pack or transformer?

Hi mkinder69,
I’m going to try to help you the best I can, provided with the very limited information you provided.

In the future, if you would provide information such as;
I am using “X” brand track with “X” brand turnouts…
I am modeling in “X” scale…
I am running “X” brand locomotive…
The loco stops before the point…on the point…on the frog…beyond the first turnout but before the second turnout…etc…

The more information you can provide, the more the members here will be able to offer possible solutions/advice.

Help us help you.

That said;

I will assume you are using Bachmann track/turnouts…if not then this may not apply.
I am a Normal modeler so I will also presume you are also…if not, again same disclaimer…

The following links discuss “Bachman specific products” not in combination with other manufacturer products.
Also strictly N gauge.

Look here;

Again, help us help you…we need more information.

Or use the search function, on this board, for your specific scale.


Good Luck
