Vinny,

Do you have your trains running yet?

"Cab Control" means being able to select which power pack controls which section of track and being able to switch back and forth. It is the best way to allow trains to go from one electrical block to another.

But you can operate without it as long as both your power packs are set to the same direction and approximate speed as the loco crosses from one oval to the other.

Do you plan to run more than one train?

If so you may want to be able to turn off the power to one siding or area of track. This is also done with insulators and a switch to turn on and off the feed to that section of track. In this case you can get away with just insulating one side of the track.

If you place a loco on the inner oval, will it run?

In any case you have to have 2 insulators at each area where the inner and outer ovals meet. You must maintain 2 completely independant electrical circuits.

You need a total of 8 insulators and I have marked in white where they should go.

I didn't think that Bachmann makes "Power Routing" turnouts in any scale. "Power Routing" means that electrical power is routed through the rails depending on which route is selected. (straight or diverging).

Are you maybe talking about "Powered" turnouts that have a "switch machine" attached so that they can be remotely operated?

But it is more important to know that they are "Momentary" switches.

A regular SPDT won't work..... It has to be a "Momentary" SPDT.

2 momentary push buttons will also work. (one for each direction)

UNION PACIFIC 3593
An EMD SD45-2 was repainted in Desert Storm
camouflage colors in honor of Union Pacific's
66 employees that served in active duty. 3593
was released from the North Little Rock Shops
on February 27, 1991, for service throughout the
railroad's nineteen state system. On August 19,
1991, the locomotive was seen at Portland, Ore.
The "Desert Victory" colors disappeared on Oc-
tober 10, 1991, in favor of UP's traditional ar-
mour yellow.

I don't think this is really a "Walkaround" throttle. I would call it a "Tethered" throttle. You can only walk until you run out of wire length.

A true "Walkaround" allows you to unplug the throttle and plug in at a different location while the train continues moving.

They are separate pieces, but they are glued in so well, they seem like one piece.

Roundhouse has some nice 50' old time cars in Sante Fe that might work. ATSF and Santa Fe are the same railroad aren't they?

Sorry I don't have any Hi-F parts. The loco isn't mine. The photo is from an internet article on how to rebuild an Athearn Hi-F.

I wonder if "New Meat" has some old Athearn locos with rubber band drives?

That is a whole different subject......

Does it look like this?
