      Thanks for the information. Guess I need to start saving money for 3 of these transformers.

With these controllers you have the ability to operate 2 sidings from each switch unit with the A))5 Y cable and there are extension cables for track feed and turnout control wires available so complete plug and play . The turnouts as supplied are power routing. ie power follow the points and the other track is disconnected. however they come with screws that will change them to non power routing like the micro trains and Marklin turnouts.
