Re: Z scale electrical points adding a switch wiring

Connect one wire from the controller to the centre tag on one side of the switch. Connect the two blue wires from the points to the other 2 tags on the switch. Connect the other wire that comes from the controller to the yellow (common) wire of the points.

Edited for correct wire colours.

You have over 4 minutes of video followed by about 6 minutes of blank screen.

Re: wiring diagram

There is a free drawing program for electronics called TinyCAD that could possibly be used.
I generally use a combination of TinyCAD and PaintShop Pro for my diagrams.

Only trouble is every time I go and see NMMS I end up coming away with other things on top of whatever I went in for.
NMMS ?

Re: Hole lot of trouble

Slip some thin card or Plasticard between the track and the baseboard to cover as much of the hole as possible, making sure the point still works, then add the ballast small amounts at a time and glue in place. A pair of tweezers can be helpful and keep checking the point moves as the glue dries.

Me too. Absolutely no interest in football, very slight interest in tennis.
