I recently purchased the MTH Railking Operating Watchman Shanty 30-9186. It comes with a rocker switch control box to make the Watchman go in and out of his shanty. Two wires from the control box go to transformer and 4 wires go to shanty. Is there a way to wire this up to a Lionel Fastrack Accessory Activation track as to bypass this control box. I want the train to activate the Shanty like the Lionel Automatic Gateman.
Bottom of Shanty has 4 hookups labeled ABCD. A is Hot......D is ground.........B and C are normally open and Normally closed.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated!

Additional thought....would the Lionel 153ir be a better choice for activating this accessory....
