    Controller overload with crossover install

    I was testing a short. The problem was the reverse loop. A little reworking of track and it is working perfectly! Now, drilling and wiring all the switches, putting landscape and buildings back in, but my little man is super happy. THANKS!

    Controller overload with crossover install
