I am probably weird, but I like the old manual switches from yester-year...you know, the ones you actually switched by hand with a little plastic arm (that would break a little too easily). One reason, I admit, was the ease of wiring (it required none) and I always thought they looked cool...and in the prototype someone had to jump down and switch these things, which meant the engine had to stop...at least in the past before they all became automated. I had some automatic ones (as that seems to be about the only thing you can find anymore) and wired them up to the Accessories port on my controller, flipped the switch and it worked...once! Has never worked again, and I am now having to use them by hand, which is a pain since they don't really have throw arms. I don't know what I did but it must have blown something, very disheartening. However, as no one else has this problem, I just probably need to invest in better swithces, but it didn't really matter to me. Anyway, am I the only one who likes the old manual switches? I see them on a couple of the old layouts, but even on those that are supposedly the most "prototypical" I see that the switches are all automated. Maybe it is human nature not to want to walk over and flip thes things.
