Need help wiring Peco PE-SLE393F 20 degree crossing for DCCgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread
I have a Peco PE-SLE393F 20 degree crossing that I need to wire
into my DCC layout. This is my first DCC layout and can't wait to
get it working properly. I am very confused as to the wiring which
needs to be done. Reading the documentation from Peco it
indicates that I need either one or two additional four poll double
throw switches. The switches indicated by Peco are manual
switches, but I would like to run through these crossings by some
automated mode. Can anybody help me accomplish this? I really
don't know where to start and need to install two of these
crossovers in the layout. I believe the same thing holds for Peco's
scissors crossovers. Any hints on those as well?

I just went to the local train store. I checked out a Peco SL194. It is an insulfrog crossing. You don't have to do anything special for the insulfrog type Peco crossing.
Judging from the part number you have, I think the E means electrofrog. My local train store didn't have any of these for me to check out. If you have an electrofrog, I can't help you.
