Wiring Indicator Bipolar LED into Toggle Switch


Marvin Pankaskie
 

I am building a toggle switch panel that will control all my turnouts by connecting the 3 (SPDT 3 or 6 lugs) toggle switch leads to a NCE mini-panel and programming it to throw the turnout Tortoises via accessory addresses. For a variety of reasons, I would like to add a bipolar indicating LED to the panel for each toggle switch and connect it somehow to the toggle switch instead of running wire under the layout back to the Tortoise. I know this is not the optimal design, but there are reasons why this may be easier for me to do than crawling under my layout and running more wire. I have not purchased the toggles or LEDs yet pending a more definitive schematic on how to wire the LED to the toggle lugs and then connect the toggle to the mini-panel. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
