    I'm in the process wiring my layout, I have 2 reverse loops and on each loop there is a turn out, one to a turntable which will have an AR1 controlling it, the other RL turnout goes to a yard area. Each reverse loop is controlled by its' own controller (PM42) sections set for Auto-reversing. My question is, if I'm operating a switcher in the yard area and a freight loco enters the Reverse loop on which I'm running the yard switcher and the entering freight loco is entering the loop with the opposite polarity and the auto-reverse switches, what happens to my switcher in the yard, same goes for the other loop with the turntable's entry and exit rails?? I was told that nothing will happen?????

    Nothing happens. They contine doing what they were doing.

    The direction facility for your locos is built into the chip. Changing the polarity of the track doesn't matter, as it is a sort of AC to begin with.

    If you are using DCC 60103 is correct
