I am trying to connect two cabs (power supplies) to my block Selectors in order to control a reverse loop and having a heck of a time. They are wired exactly (as far as I can tell) according to diagram on back of Controller package. I get power to the reverse loop, but not the blocks. Does anyone of any ideas and/or experience with this? Or where I can look for help. Thanks,
Lappy

you have 2 wires from the pack to the controller for your reverse loops. one of these passes through the controller to your selectors. th3e other should be internally connected to a terminal on the controller marked "c". this c terminal must be connected to the common rail of any tracks that are not part of the reverse loop. that is, connect it to the opposite rail fromthe one your selectors connect to. try this with a jumper first, and see if it cures the problem......
