      lgb 3 way switch

      I have 2 lgb 3 way switches. I am wiring thru the MTH AIU with diodes.  I have tried multiple waring configurations none work properly. Any one know how to wire them properly .

      LGB used diodes and AC power for the EPL switch drives.  Polarity needs to be reversed.  All LGB 5075 units had AC input of approx. 18 volts and there were diodes inside to pick throw direction on one wire.  Go to training dutchman to see diagrams of units he constructed.  Remember the 5075 used momentary switches as you can not have power always on the EPL units, the motors will burn out.
