* This video demonstrates a DC Point-To-Point, Push-Pull, Automatic Reversing Shuttle, using an S gauge and a Largescale engine.
    * This is for trains running on DC current (not AC, not DCC).
    * It uses a simple timer to reverse the polarity to the rails every 16 to 120 sections (adjustable).
    * Diode track sections are used at each end to stop the trains. . . . . . . --
    * This is a simple circuit that needs ONLY TWO wires to the track.
    * Although the unit demonstrated (PH Hobbies) is no longer made, these "polarity reversing timers" are fairly generic, and several companies currently sell them.
