Re: wiring LED's for snap switch postion reporting
Thanks for your reply , i would like to see a drawing for latching
relay if you have one. I purchased an Atlas snap relay but it
doesn't seem to be woking as i intended.

If you have powered frogs seehttp://www.wiringfordcc.com/signaling.htm.
If you have Tortoise machines use a technique fromhttp://www.wiringfordcc.com/sw_ctl.htm#a15. Or simply use the
switches internal to the Tortoise to operate the LED signals.
several other ways...
1. Add a mechanical microswitch to be activated by the throwbar.See http://www.wiringfordcc.com/switches.htm scroll down about 2/3
of the way to RECOMMENDATION #2-22: this also works with manuual
2. Use a latching relay with diodes to flip and remember whichcoil was pulsed last. Use a relay with coil voltage rating of about
1/2 that of the supply. Be sure to use steering and free-wheeling
diodes feeding the latching relay coils. I can post a circuit
diagram if you need it.
know of a wiring or output device i can use to report out switchmotion
