Basic Reverse Loop Wiring.

I have been asked how to wire a reverse section. I found it very tricky to describe in chat. So here is a quick sketch to show the principle. There are many variations possible from this but this is the basic one.

Example: A train comes into the loop on the straight track of the T/o. The DPDT switch is in the down position so the track polarity is the same. Once the train is completely in the loop section, it stops. The controller is switched to reverse and the DPDT is flicked to the up position and the T/o is changed. The train is now good to carry on in its forward direction.
What a PITA.
