What's the story with the auto-reversing track for point to point operation?  I want to build some bookshelf, city scene diorammas but I don't need to buy a train set, a building or a power supply.  Is it possible to purchase the reversing system separately?

Jerry,

Try Walthers for a Circutron or Minitronics reversing unit. I believe both have a unit that may fill your needs.

If not, others will soon let us know with proper sourcing.

If you can not get a Bachmann one:

Circuitron makes a auto reverse board.  I have seen it on Caboose Hobbies and Walther's web sites.  There are two different versions.

Aristo-Craft has one.  Caboose and Walther's both carry this one also.  It has an adjustment for the timer.  I found it worked best when connected to the uncontrolled DC out of a power pack and then put a simple speed control between it and the track.  You will need a couple of gaps and a couple of small diodes, 1n4001's should work for HO and N scale.

The Bachmann Electronic Auto-Reversing Nickel Silver E-Z Track is used to expand the HO and On30 scale Trolley and Street Car sets.

The reversing electronics are in the car barn and it is not sold separately.

     I just purchased a new On30 trolley set. The new Bachmann set has adjustable speed. you can find these for under $100 even $75 on Ebay.
    This might be your least expensive and EZ est (pun intended) route to go.
