Re: Controlling power (0n/Off) in Staging Yard Tracks

Jerry, you're right based on your railroad's operations.  I'm a single operator on a home based layout, and while I do run multiple trains at the same time . . . . yard operations are usually one train at a time.  So for me, the rotary switches were the perfect answer.

Wouldn't a problem with rotary switches be that  you can only turn on one track at a time? That wouldn't work for us considering a train may be entering the yard as another is leaving.  We need individual switches.
