Dave has been in touch with a question that comes up alot – how to wire reverse loops?
And Bill from Virginia’s been back in touch – with another scenenery ‘how to’.
But let’s start with Dave.
“Here are 5 pics of the layout and a diagram.
Sorry for the mess but I’m trying to ballast the outside loop.
The problem is the reverse loops and how I should wire them. I have NCE as my DCC control although I have it running on the outside loop via DC right now.
I understand I need to insulate blocks or districts, but do I continue to wire the track the same within the district ( Blue wire on the north rail, white wire on the south rail) and use a module for seamless transition?
I do not want to use a DPDT switch if at all possible.
And Des has sent in this scenery tip:
The dried foilage is the winter blooms off cattail plants found in wetland areas.
Now on to Bill – If you missed his last ‘how to’, it’s here.
Now have a look at how he gets the details into these trees:
I had a lot of fun putting the how to’s together for the pine tree build. I created a video for the furnace filter pine trees I showed a picture of in the ‘How To’.
I’m hoping modelers that give it a try and send in pictures of there results. Quick, easy and fun.

That’s all for this time peeps.
Please do leave a comment below if you can help Dave with his reverse loop.
Please do keep ’em coming. My inbox is looking a bit sad and lonely at the mo.
