I am trying to wire up a simple insulation in a siding using a 1015U and5180 On/off Control Box (something I thought would be a peice of cake!), but seem to be having some problems. I should point out I am relatively new to Garden Railroading.
My problem is that I seem to only be able to drive into the siding and not reverse out or drive just past the 1015U (when the Loco stops) and then reverse out. Should I be able to set up a simple dead-end siding using the1015U and 5180 to dive in, iscolate then activate again and reverse out? The siding is not in a loop nor in a station passing siding, just a simple dead-end siding off a single circuit/loop of track.
I am wondering whether I am having some polarity problems similar to those found in a reversing loop, but I have gone over the instructions and wiring over and over and just can't get it. I am also beginning to wonder whether I am using the correct LGB bits to acheive this. The output from the Control Box (switch labeled terminal) is connected to the 2A terminal on the iscolated (siding side) of the 1015U.
Thank you all for your help and I hope someone will point out something simple and put me out of my misery. Please don't be concerned about offending me by pointing out what might seem to you the blindingly obvious...
