I want to switch my Lenz controller between programming and main on a rolling road.


Doing so would save me having to constantly move the loco from the RR to the layout to check my CV settings.

Can some kind soul tell me if I can do that through a DPDT switch and if so, a wiring diagram would be most helpful............

Full English!  A distant memory.......as a special treat I am allowed two poached eggs on Fridays......followed by a bacon buttie on Saturdays if I have been good.....mind you its an emasculated thing.....all the lovely crisp fat is trimmed off......and given to the dog:Red Card.




                   Programme.                   Feed to track.             DCC bus


                      P.                                           - ve                             J


                     Q.                                           +ve                              K



Hope that is understandable......they are the 6 connectors on the switch

The two central connections go to the track

Let us know if it works

That's brilliant John - understood perfectly !!  They're the 6 terminals on a DPDT switch - I have one of those somewhere ....................... :hmm

Your breakfasts sound very much like mine - all the best bits go to the dog !!  I know what I'm coming back as next time around ............... :mutley


A weekly bacon butty !!!  Wow that certainly beats me - occasionally here, and only then if I'm very lucky ...............  Liz says I need to lose some girth. :shock:   Have you heard of the five two ?  If ever Doreen mentions those words, run !!!
