    I want to use push buttons on a diagram to operate the turnouts that I can't reach, and I will be using a DC transformer to power them. Can someone tell me the steps that I need to take to make this become a reality? My Ho trains are operated with DCC Prodigy Express. Thanks.

    Hiya Joe(?),
    Here's a basic electrical diagram for the switch machine hookup. If using pushbuttons they just go in place of each side of the toggle switch. Try searching on The Gauge for "control panel", there should be quite a few posts and pictures.:) :)

    Thanks for the info; I will be doing some test wiring tomorrow, and I need to build a control box.
