    Well, I have reached the point in trying to wire the layout that I need to install the Power District CB's and turntable reverser. (BTW I have the Digitrax Chief and pm42's.) I have 2 PM42's. #1 will be straight CB for 4 districts. #2 will have position 1-CB for staging, Position 2 - reverse loop for turntable, and position 3- CB for turntable.

    I understand the pinout wiring for the "all CB" unit. Here is how I believe the second unit will pin out.

    1 A
    2 B - Ground from command unit
    3 C - Power in from PS12 (connection also for other lead to pin 3)
    Rail A in - -- 4 D
    5 E - To Rail A Staging
    6 F - To Rail B Staging
    Rail B in --- 7 H
    Section 3 A in- 8 J
    9--K - To Turntable Rail A
    10-L - To turntable Rail B
    Section 3 B in- 11 M
    Rail A in---- 12 N - To pin 8
    13 P
    14 R
    Rail B in---- 15 S - to pin 11

    I would appreciate your comments and corrections if I have done something wrong. :rolleyes: :D

    It has been a lot of fun running the three trains with the DCC but I still need to get the rest of the layout done. Wiring almost finished then we start the scenery.

    Thanks for your help.:) :)
