Hello all,
After wiring up my layout ( a passing loop with attached siding ) I am getting a short detected by my NCE power cab and backed up my the multimeter, this short only happens when the tortoises are set in on direction.
Can anyone help?

Thanks
Sam

PS its 2 out of the three tortoises i have, haven't tested the third.

I guess you're using the tortoises to switch the crossing polarity so check the connections there first. If I remember rightly, the connections aren't in a particularly logical order so it's easy to get wrong.

Thanks
