I'll bet that at some point in your T-Trak adventures, you saw the Unitrack 20-210 Double Crossover in Kato's catalog and thought to yourself, "double track, 310 millimeters long…all I need to do is fasten it to a module box, and I'm done! At recent shows, our club has been running the outer line on DCC, with the inner loop(s) connected to DC power packs. Postscript: check out this video of a crossover module being put to interesting use in a T-Trak layout!

Kato has advised us that this unit has four solenoids in its base, each operating one turnout point set.

Feeder Tracks, Double Crossover and all turnouts are factory-wired for plug-and-play operation.


This modular track system features nickel-silver rails fully integrated to a remarkably realistic-looking roadbed.
Take a look at the instructions, and notice that there are insulated gaps in the inside rails of both tracks. Plan your layout to have a feeder-equipped module on both sides of the crossover, and wire feeders from each track together at the power supplies. If you are brave, you can open up your crossover and add jumpers inside which will allow you to use the unit on a single without feeder wires or jumpers. The presence of a double crossover module in this situation, even for purely decorative purposes, is asking for trouble, so we'll simply leave it out.
If both lines are operating on DCC, it's easy, just throw the turnout levers and run the train over to the other main.
If you are wiring the DS51K1 internally to this track segment, it is easiest to program each turnout pair to the same address; done this way, activating one track switch address will result in the operation of the pair of turnouts, or all four if you desire.


The frustration of derailments resulting from uneven rail joints and separating sections is eliminated. If the rest of your layout is a simple oval, one set of feeders will suffice to get power around the layout—that is, until a rail joiner fails and leaves half the layout dead (which is exactly what happened to us at the November '11 Syracuse show). For reliable operation, you really need to ensure that power is fed to both sides of the crossover.
