    New guy here and need some help.Working on this for my Dads' LGB train layout.What he has is a tram system that has two limit switches on each end of the system.It is using a LGB locomotive 12vdc motor for the drive.
    I have include a diagram to show the way I have it wired.Without any load on the motor everything works find , hitting a limit and the motor changes direction.Upon connecting the tram travel cable, it will go in one direction and hit the opposite limit and not change direction.I have to turn the transformer up to about 18 vdc to get it to work.Have the transformer set to 13 vdc to start.
    I have used the search feature and haven't found anything that might help.If you have a link or some help it would be greatly appreciated.
