Hi

This is my first attempt at 2 rail and wiring up. I am trying to replicate the wiring given in the instructions to the 8589 circuit switch track. This looks to give automatic train control to two trains on the same track with a passing loop. This is what i hope to achieve.

The photo shows the instructions that came with it. What I can't see is how power is delivered to each of the isolated sections. I presume that I should wire up the isolated sections as per the instructions with the 89391 signal? Any guidance gratefully received.

Hi Mike,
I assume the three lots of grey shaded connections (by the 8589 labels) are track power feeds?

Hi Alan
Your guess is as good as mine on that one.

Looking at other M guidance, a grey wire is normally an earth to the grey connection on the Z transformer. It is an accessory earth wire.

Who knows if that's right or you are? As I have seen on another site, the M wiring diagrams can "do your head in". LOL
