Oooops!!! I forgot to attach the revised track plan....Sorry.
(Hope it comes through...)
Lynn: Now is the time to take that one switch out of the layout and hook it up to a piece of track and wires. If you still have a short, you have a dud switch. Now, it's between you and your dealer.
Alright everybody, I finally got it. Like I said, I had never run into this before. Out of all the switches, I narrowed it down to 3, then 2, then I found out when I put the light from a known line, it would light up on both tracks of that switch. I replaced it and everything is rosy. The only trouble now is that I took up and replaced the switches so many times the track has got gaps all over. THAT I can take care of. Thanks for all the help and support in how to narrow it all down.
Lynn - glad you solved it - the oly thing worse than one that is causing problems all the time, is the one that has a transient fault
- only does it occasionally, or disappears when someone else looks at it, appearing again 2 minutes after he has walked out the door - those will REALLY drive you bananas! :curse:
