another newbie question; this one on wiring

i have 2 lionel #154 rr crossing signs.  can i hook them up to a single 154c contactor?


i would make sense since i would want them to activate at the same time.


what deactivates the lites?  is it timed?

Original Post

You can hook up both signals to one 154C contactor.


The signals flash when the train wheels go over the contactor, completing the electrical circuit. After the train passes and no wheels are on the contactor, the lights stop flashing.


The faster the train runs, the quicker the flashing, and vice-versa.
