I wish to run my LGB turnout motors 12010 automatically under normal operation via 17100 reed contacts. I understand how to wire these.
But I would also like the ability to throw the switches via 51750 Momentary Switch boxes as necessary without having to walk across the rail yard and possibly damaging something. I have looked at the schematics and think I understand how to wire the turnout motors to the switch box.
My question: Can I connect both a switch box and a track contact to an LGB turnout motor 12010 at the same time so I can do both? If so, how do I wire the turnout? I cannot find a schematic showing how to do this. I am assuming I can wire the 17100 and 51750 (orange and white wires) in parallel to the 12010 turnout motor input. Is this correct? I do not have a switch box yet or I would test this. And I don’t want to spend $80 to find out it doesn’t work.
Thank you in advance.
