    I have an O scale layout and I’m using an MTH TIU and hand held DCS remote controller. There are 3 separate transformers running three loops that connect to each other via switch tracks. All wiring works great, usually, but now and then I get shorts when passing from loop to loop. This seems to happen only when I have too many engines on the tracks. Any thoughts on my issue will be appreciated?
