Finally go tto the "golden railjoiner" to cpmplete a large loop today (simple loop, no reverse loop), but i can't get the trains to run past my turnouts. I have a sunset turnout (to a siding), and another about 70 feet away (also to a siding), but the loco will only operate between these two switches, and power is not getting beyond the switches. I am using llagas code 250 NS rail. and sunset ns switches. the loco seems to die as soon as in crosses the frog on the one swich (from the short side), and as soon as the entire loco gets onto the other switch ( also frm the short side, away from the points).
Any ideas???? Is this common with sunset switches, or do I have some defects?
