Message: Steve, you actually have numerous options where you can install the insulating joiners.
Message: Using Marks diagram i wish the HORIZONTAL line tobe my main so to speak and be able to go forward or back into the VERTICAL line which would be one of my yard stub track. Message: As a matter of interest what radius are you guys using for your wye curves , im also wondering what lengths are you putting on the legs or are you just fitting into the space you have?
Message: Ok guys if i have a PECO wye at the top of my wye and we know peco power is directional do i have to put the feeder from the reverser on the other side of the wye where the wye becomes straight track.
Message: Perhaps it would be beneficial to describe what's going on inside a reversing module. I was born and raised in Las Vegas and have always thought this would make a great model railroad.

Caliente was a division point and helper terminal, plus there was a branchline to Pioche that took off adjacent to the yard.
There were similar depots at other major rail facilities in very small towns on the old LA&SL, like Milford, UT and Kelso, CA.
Another typical looking industry is Letica Corporation, although this is south of Las Vegas. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Our site features a wide selection including Model Railroad, Lionel Train, Toy Train, Model Train, Train Set, Rare Lionel Train, and Train Bridge. You CAN isolate just the stub tail, just insulate both rails on both input tracks (at the frog end of the turnout, NOT the points end) to the wye. For turning motive power, it's probably not an issue, but with an entire yard on the electrically switched section, there's a good possibility that there will be more than a few locomotives drawing their juice through the Tortoise. I have a wye track on my layout, but instead of using a reverse module, I added a DPDT relay which is activated by a small set of contacts on the turnout. If you want more room for train length and shuffle room to the yard i would say your better to have isolation closer to the East and West. It looks like you are off to a great start, and I will join those watching your progress with great interest! If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
You could also automatically flip polarity when the switch is thrown to match the legs rather than a more expensive auto reverser unit. You could also insulate either of the approach sections to the wye or isolate both the approaches AND the tail as one big piece.

Once your loco is free of the gaps you dont have to worry about them and you have the length of the leg of the wye to work with. The power is routed through the frog to both frog rails, with the end result is that the selected route has opposite polarity on both rails allowing power to flow to an engine sitting on that section, while the unselected route has the same polarity on both rails, not allowing a complete circuit.
Way short on sleep today = a little brain dead.For the sake of correctness, I've revised the diagram to show the "live" wing rails, and that the only "dead" rail is the unselected point rail. Im thinking you isolate one complete leg of the wye that is insulators both rails either end of section where track is sandwiched between rails.Thanks Steve.
As you can see, trains can safely pass over either of the insulated joints, and the autoreverser will set the polarity accordingly.
Yeah, there's the rare occasion where I switch the layout over to DC and run some old stuff, so this comes in handy.Mark. We are lucky to have power experts on the forum, actually we have experts in all fields on the forum! My thoughts are take into consideration how many locos in consist because if your using a couple you dont want tobe bridging the gaps, at least i dont think so. I've also placed the isolated joints near the main, just so the diagram is a little clearer, but you could move them to the frog end of the wye turnout.
