How the #1202 is used to run 2 trains on the same loop, and keep them from running into each other.

Two trains can be run on the same track by using (1) #1202 as shown in the diagram.
Replace the (3) metal track pins with insulators and attach wires to the track as shown.
Be sure to observe the direction of travel.

The controlling section is a section o track insulated from the rest of the track by insulators.
These insulators should be installed on (1) rail only, preferably the common base post or on DC, the (-) rail.
The controlling section may be any length desired. The length is determined by the spacing of the insulators.

OPERATION: When two trains are on the loop, the #1202 will keep the two trains separated.
The lead train will be stopped in the insulated section and will remain stopped until the trailing train enters the control section.
You should lock AC reverse units in forward or use Lock Out Eliminators, to prevent reverse units from cycling.
The system will not work with only one engine running in the loop.
No can have other connections to the track in the control or insulated sections.

NOTE: For three rail systems, all connections from the #1202 and insulators, are on the center rail.
