Re: Solenoid Turnout Switch

John Bishop

Why a dpdt? A spring loaded (momentary) spdt should do it. Common to one side of both solenoids, the hot wire to the middle post of the spdt, and the remaining side of each solenoid to opposite posts of the spdt.

Or maybe I am misunderstanding the problem.

Hello. Unfortunately all my turnouts
on "Thomas and Friends Line" are driven by double solenoid
coils and the usual 3 wire system. Is there such a switch
as:DPDT non latching? or a push to make, release to break
nonlatching but reverses the polarity with each push. Or
even a simple circuit that can do what I want, which is one
panel switch per turnout. JMRI is still too involved for my
grandchild. (And Grand Pops is still learnig
