Re: Signal control switches

Had another go with the PL 26 lever. If I flick the switch backwards and forwards it works about every 10 flicks. Obviously an unsatisfactory state of affairs. Any problem standing out to anyone here ? It appears that a faulty switch is all that remains. All ideas gratefully received.

Hello Everyone, I'm a fairly newby, been at it for about 18months. After having Hornby Dublo as a kid, I'm now wrestling with the intricacies of DCC. Does anyone know if I can control Dapol easy fix semaphore signals using a peco PL26 switch. My local shop recommended a button type switch and it wor...
