First a picture then a question afterwards:
I know how to wire the components (not the way shown in the picture though - I was experimenting) and I understand the use of the sensitivity knob on the accuator (SP???). My question is on the accuator placement and usage. I'm guessing that it has to be placed under a track tie - as shown in the picture - or else if the device is placed off to one side or the other of the tie a dead short would result since the device would be touching all 3 rails. But when I put the device under a tie, the track sits higher than I would like.
Not having directions, I turn to the experts!!!!! How is it intended to be placed?
I am considering one other option after reading your replies. I'm thinking I could put it NOT under a tie but rather under just the rails as long as I isolate the center rail from touching it. I am thinking a piece of electrical tape on the bottom of the middle rail would work.
As always, thanks - walt
