Thanks for all the support guys, I have been a little slack lately and have done nothing in my train room for a week! I am waiting for an auto reversing module to arrive and some more Tortoise switch machines. I can then finish the center lines to the reversing loops. Also, rig up a test bed using the Peco curved turnouts and Tortoise switch machines. One of the guys I work with is an N scale fan and an electrician. I showed him the Peco turnouts and he did some tests with a multi-meter and came to the same conclusion as jagged ben, just power the frog from the Tortoise. I also read the wiring for DCC link, good info and PICTURES!! I will add jumper wires from the closure rails to the point rails and that shoud solve the "dead rail" issue. This all begs the question, "why doesn't Atlas make a code 55 curved turnout?"
