I have several scale sets. I have 10 sets of HO. Different mfgs. I have twelve sets of lionel. My question is only about my b achmann g scale. I am trying to set up one locomotive to run with an auto reverse system for my g scale locomotive. I read your article regarding the trolley's, and the other types of single cars. Is it possible to set up a g scale locomotive to run with a reverse system? thank you.
Yes, some systems will allow you to reverse an entire train. Instead of having, say, an 18" piece of track at each end, you'd need a section long enough to hold your entire train. But it can be done.
That said, When I wrote that, several systems were available, LGB has stopped manufacturing many of its accessories and AristoCraft has gone out of business.
I'm attaching the instruction sheet for the AristoCraft system I favored when it was widely available. Hopefully it will give you some idea of how these things tend to work.
Best of luck - Paul
