I'm assembling a DC layout, and would like to know if the Bachmann crossovers are power routing, because I'm going to be running a double loop setup with two DC controllers and two B- man crossovers. Heres a link to one: https://www.modeltrainstuff.com/bachmann-ho-44576-ns-ez-track-6-remote-right-hand-crossover/

I know regular B-man switches are power routing, but Idk if these are.

PS: Power routing means the power only goes in the direction that the switch is thrown.

Thanks in advance!! :smilie_daumenpos:

I'm not familiar with these EZ crossovers. However,
my guess is that the EZ model in your post are not power routing

They are designed to cross between two parallel tracks,
for example a double track mainline. If, you plan to use
them to connect the 'East' side track of a single track oval to the west' side track you will be creating reverse loops and
you would need special DC wiring and isolated sections.

Bachmann makes two models of the EZ crossover.

This one can be used on a DC layout:

It comes with wiring and remote control buttons.

The other model is designed for a DCC layout and
includes a 'stationary decoder'. You can throw the
points using your DCC controller.
