I took the wiring diagram off of this site ( http://www.awrr.com/indicator.html )and converted it into a simpler form for everyone to understand. Now I searched the web high and low to see if anyone had tried it. No posted any YouTube videos on how to set this circuit up. The closes video you can watch shows you how to wire up for a tortoise switch machine. On my next lay out I will go with tortoise or petco switch machines, easier to add led lights to them. I have attached my take on the wire diagram, but it’s not an electrical schematic. It is show you the switches and how to wire it all up. Where each wire goes etc. I did happen to find a diagram similar to this one, but instead of it being ground controlled it is power controlled. For this system to work you will need a dpdt switch, spst switch (normally open), red and green leds, and 1kohm resistor. I picked up the switches and leds off of amazon for $15 total. The resistors are from radio shack. If you have any questions, feel free to message me.
