Wiring for DCC

    I have planned my layout very carefully over the last couple of months but I am no expert on wiring, just inspiration :). I was wondering if someone could take a look at my layout for me to see if there are hidden reverse loops. I haven't installed decoders in all three of my SD35's yet so I don't want to be confined to running DCC alone. Are reverse loops a problem with DCC, or are the only a problem with analog wiring. How would one go about switching back and forth from DC to DCC on the same layout?

    as far as i see there are no reverse loops. wiring for dcc could be done by two wires only. however, i'd strongly recommend to use feeder wires every two feet or so. most problems with dcc are because of not enough feeders.
