Accessories like the famous Lionel Gateman have both a light and an animation feature. These accessories can be wired and activated in a couple of ways. You have the option of having your light on all the time, or to have it operate in conjunction with the animation when activated by the passing train.
All you have to do is change a few wires and you’ll have the operation you want. Follow along in this video as we show how you can configure this popular accessory with our insulated outside rail track block. The same techniques will work with other illuminated / animated accessories like the burning switchtower.
