I just installed my first Ross switch: a tubular rail O72 that's a drop-in replacement for the old Lionel O72 switch. Mechanically, it's a revelation! I've never seen locomotives and rolling stock go through a switch, forward and backward, so smoothly. What a pleasure!
I have two issues/questions about the DZ1000 switch motor that came with the switch:
1) The appropriate LED indicator on the DZ1000 flashes when the switch is thrown, but does not stay illuminated. All my switches are controlled by Lionel SC-2s, including this one. Is there anything I can do so the indicator stays illuminated?
2) In order to make the DZ1000 play nicely with the Lionel LCS STM2, do I have to add a DZ1008 relay (and a 5v DC power source)?
