As someone gearing towards converting my layout to DCC, I was running a simple figure of eight circuit using Bachmann's DCC-fitted Class 25 and an unfitted Bachmann Deltic using Bachmann's E-Z Command controller. The diamond I was using was a Fleischmann Profitrack wide angle short crossing.
After a few circuits, the Class 25 suddenly changed direction and crashed back into the Deltic!
Was this due to a momentary short on the crossing? And is this a problem inherent with all diamond crossings and DCC?
I ask because I current have eight Peco long diamond crossings on my main layout, and dread to think of the consequences if this were to happen when I went live DCC on my main layout!
Thanks in advance for any help and/or suggestions you can provide.
