Title: Replace Bachmann HO EZ Track Turnout Switches
Post by: BobZ on November 10, 2018, 12:15:12 PM
Looking for suggestions for a different on-off-on momentary switch, preferably micro size, to replace the switch control that comes with the Bachmann EZ Track turnouts. I'm looking for about 25.
Thanks

You could use something like this if you want a momentary contact toggle switch:

Or you could use push buttons like this if you want to mount them in a control panel track plan:

Wiring the push buttons is pretty straight forward:

Unforturnately, the schematic software I used is a 'freebie' and doesn't include a center off toggle switch. The power supply can be AC or DC, and I find 14-16V works best.

Go to Allelectronics.com search for SPDT switches they had a couple of momentary contact switches that would meet your needs and they offer a bit of a discount for bulk (10+) purchases.
