The Machine

Here's a quick shot of an installed Circuitron 'Tortoise' switch machine on the layout. I'll go into more detail on these soon, but so far I'm very happy I took the more expensive option for turnout control on the Onondaga Cutoff.
There are many built-in options with these motors and the possibilities are many. For me, I will be using double-pole, double-throw toggle switches to control the motors, and will incorporate bi-color LEDs on the model boards to indicate the direction of the switches.

More to come soon!
