My son received this as a Christmas gift from his Granddad (new, still in shrinkwrap):

http://www.bachmanntrains.com/home-usa/products.php?act=viewProd&productId=1175

Aside from the standard E-Z Track instructions that come with the Bachmann HO sets, there is was no documentation on the four electrical switches to use with the four track switches.  Presumably, the red wires route power from the accessory terminals of the transformer to the switch(es).  These switches in turn, appear that they can be daisy-chained together.  The four green wires are (again presumably) used to route power from each electrical switch to its corresponding track switch.  Id appreciate if anyone could let me know if Im in error here.

I searched the website and could find any online documentation either.

A search of the forum shows that at least one other person has run across this problem as well.  Bachmann, a little more hand-holding for newbies, please.

Thanks.

you are correct.

Use the AC terminals of a DC model train power pack to power the switch machine in the E-Z Track Turnout.

Connect the controllers (black slide switches) together, and connect the red wires from the AC terminals to one controller. The green wires connect from each turnout to a controller.

You line the turnout (move the rails) with the control slide switch.
