The controller shown in the upper left is correct for this accessory. Get rid of the others. The two clips on the side of the accessory base are for fuse wire - might try very small solder between these clips.

A copy of the operating instructions including the track wiring scheme is available from the TCA Library. Get the correct model number for this accessory and then order the instruction sheet from them.

Not to scold anyone, but I see so many requests for wiring schemes on this forum. Access to their Library is a very good reason for a tinplate operator to join the TCA.

And for what it's worth, this AF manual semaphore with train stop features is my favorite operating accessory.

Terry, The wire gauge  is sort of important in the fuse wire.  I thought the wire gauge was listed on the instruction sheet... but cannot find one just now. For a test run, any wire will work... like bell wire.  don't run it too long.

Prewar Tin...Any maker, any gauge, anytime!
