Question by ccmrider2003: how do I wire an electric train switch?
I am using the EZ track system, the switches have 3 wires, do I just use a single pole double throw toggle switch
Answer by holden.shores Are just using one power pack? I’m not entirely sure but I think that two of those wires hook in to the extra connections on the pack. For an exact answer you might want to ask this question on the website below, the modelers there should definitely be able to help you out.
