yes i am using ez track turnouts with the metal frog.

what im am think of doing is using 2 leds a red and a green *red = thrown, green = closed* the black wires from my leds is wired to the frog

and then the red wires from either led go to the coresponding red wire on the turnout.

i need to know which red wire goes to which point either closed or thrown i think i have it figured out but i dont want to  solder anything yet until im sure.

thanks for the help.

i want to wire my led's wired directly in to the switch so i can tell which way the switch is pointing at any given time. but i need to know which wire goes to which rail so that way i can solder the wire properly without to much hassle.

thank you in advance.

a drawing would be helpful.
thank you it just clicked in my head. of what the measurements are thank you for the info
How do you know what size your cars take? and how do you measure that?

Wow. its been a while since i had to come on here and ask for help.

anyways, my switch controller is not working. so i made sure all my connection were correct before i came asking for help. they were. so i undid everything and ohm tested the points on the controller. in my test i found that im only getting power to the center pin on the 3 wire connection. however when i opened the controller to see if anything had come loose or broken to my surprise found nothing. so i ohm tested the switch on the controller and had good ohms on all contacts. so from power in to the switch that designates which way the turnout is pointing is fine but the connections from the switch to where the 3 wire cable connects is the issue. how can i fix this cause i don't want to buy new switches for my turnouts.

thanks for the help.
