LaramieJoe, with the postwar 022 switches there is a little "fixed voltage plug" that you can shove into the side of the switch motor housing; it bypasses the power connection from the center rail. You connect a separate wire to it, can daisychain a bunch of them together, and connect it to a separate 14-18 volt source (separate from "conventional" track power. The transformer I'm using now is an older ZW 275 watt that has variable 4 outputs and a common bus, I will connect the wire from the fixed voltage plugs to probably #3 output, set the voltage to a level that the switches are happy with, and then Bob's your uncle and I or grandson won't have to have the engine in motion in order to switch switches...

Very well stated.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.
