Yet again I thank you all for helping me and I will keep you updated as to my progress.

If I went to DCC, how do you control the switches?

Thanks again!!!!

The problem is that I can't get the train to go into the other oval;it stops when I turn the direction on the switch to go to the other oval. I put the other insulated rail joiners on but I have the same issue(see above). I was hoping I could get this thing running without having to put blocks and controls into my layout. I'm not electrically or mechanically brilliant. I'm so frustrated right now I'm about to just run one train and simplify my layout! I never had this problem with EZ track switches in HO(of course, they weren't power routed). Embarrassed

I went to the train store but no book!
I do plan on running two trains,provided I can get this problem fixed.
My train does run on either oval.
I appreciate everyone's assistance with this issue. I will keep you posted of my progress. Every time I post here, everyone has done a great job of giving me advice. I value your experience with model railroading.

One more question: how can I get one train to go in the opposite direction of the other one instead of them both going in the same direction?


Thanks everyone!!!! Smiley

Here is the starting stage of my N scale layout with EZ track. I hope to run two trains.

Here is my layout. I only have 1 insulated rail joiner connecting each switch(on the outside rail). Each oval has a power pack. The trains stops when I try to get it to the inner or outer oval. I hope the pic helps. Thanks again for your input.

The icon wasn't meant to infer that I was angry with anyone here, just my own frustration.

How do I get my EZ track power routed switches to perform right? I have a double oval with four switches on each side connecting them. I have only 6 insulated rail joiners on the layout(after showing my track plan to the guy at the local train store). I have the same terminal on each oval but when I try to switch the train into the next oval, it stops. I need help!!!! I want to get my layout up and running.

Thanks. Tongue Huh? Angry

They are all power routing. I have four switches on each side connecting both ovals plus an extra one on each side for a siding. That's 10 switches and a total of 6 insulated joiners. How do I modify the switches? Thanks for the advice!
 Huh? Undecided

That's exactly what I did and I only have 6 insulated joiners for the whole layout. I'm wondering if I need more at other points on the layout and where they should be.

I got my pink board at Home Depot. It works very well.

I put together a layout with EZ track in N scale with an outside and inside oval connected with switches. I was told to put inulated rail joiners on the outside rail where the two switches meet. I hooked up a power pack to both ovals. I tried running the train to see if it would go into the inside oval and vice-versa but it stopped once it hit the switch. I was told by the guy at the local train store that as long as I have the same type of power pack and terminal, I should be fine. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Hi. I'm looking to find realistic grade crossing decals in "N" scale(not the signs but to put on the road). Does anyone know where I can purchase some?

Thanks,
Vinny
