What do you need:

  • Switch Control Box – A switch control box is needed to control the signals, these are available from LGB and PIKO.
  • Power Supply – to power the switch control box and signal lights.
  • Wires

Wiring Diagram:

The simplest way to control a signal, is by connecting it to the control box directly (much like operating an electric switch). Just follow the colour coding, and your signal should be working. The number ‘3’ and ‘4’ terminals on the electric signal drive are for the signal lighting.
