how we wire our
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.
