Re: Wiring a swing gate?

That is basically what I have used. I also decided to route the power so it cut off the tracks on both sides of the opening for 5 feet or so, which required (in my case) two switches. There may be a better way, but this was primitive and worked. All my stay alive circuits were adjusted to stop within that distance. Some people rig some form of mechanical stop to keep their engines from taking the Great Fall, but I felt safe without that. I'd be interested in hearing suggestions for a better method if there is one for the next railroad I build.
