Reply to "How can an Atlas slide button switch controller be wired to control a Lionel O gauge switch?"

From what I can find online, the atlas switches are momentary. You slide the switch into the direction you want and once in location, it requires a press to physically close the electrical contacts. 

If this is not correct, then I completely agree with you that these would not work.  A non-momentary on-on, or on-off-on will not work with 022 switches without other pieces added to address the non-momentary nature. 

That is correct Jon.  You have to press the switches at either end for a momentary connection.  The center doesn't seem to have a physical stop to park it.  I will check each one b4 installing, since these are used.  

Thanks also to Dan65train for the caution.
