Digitrax DS44, Tortise and Walthers/Shinohara Turnouts

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread

I am confused on how to wire these turnouts. I gapped in front of the frog. The DS44 has a black and red wire pair opposite the harness side which I soldered to the DCC power bus. I then soldered the first two wires to tabs #1 & #8 on the tortise (purple on #1) Now I am trying to figure out where the other wires go? I know that the 3 pair of wires onthe harness side will go to the next Tortise, but where do tabs #2 through #7 get used? Thanks
