Just to ensure there is no confusion, I was responding to the information about the crossbar size and the methodology for powering the frog. I already ordered some .032 dia music wire for the throws.

My design does not power the switch motors from the track or a separate Accessory Bus. I also decided against operating them via DCC. Instead I'll be using the Direct Plus System + Touch Toggles from Berrett Hill. It allows for modular configurations and simple, yet nice looking control panels. (my $.02 inserted -> here).

That said, I could easily see how it would be quite handy to have a remote switch operated directly from the track, especially if there is no bus wiring nearby or benchwork/scenery is in the way. Necessity is the mother of invention and the more options the better in my mind. :thumbup:

This system looks really sleek. Pretty sure, though, the $$ indicator will go into the red when I add up all the bits I need. <insert "sigh" emoticon here>

True, I have already started printing the money I'll need...
