how we wire our point indicators

Peco point motors

We always attach a Peco switch to our point motors. If adjusted correctly, the polarity of the frog will be changed as the motor throws. The green wire is attached to the frog, and the red and blue wires to the track supply. It is always necessary to check that these are wired the correct way around to avoid sparks!

All we do to have indicator lights is to extend the frog wiring and track power to the control panel.

LEDs will only work wired up the correct way, With a bit of experimentation, it is quite easy to get the lights to come on in the correct manner. We use 12 V LEDs supplied by EXPO Tools. As we use DCC, we add the resistor.
