    Circuitron Tortoise Switch Machine ???

    Thanks for all of your replies. Now explain if they can be used on Bachmann's ez-track turn outs. I also like the use of the Atlas snap relays for the use of panel lights.

    Circuitron Tortoise Switch Machine ???

    I might be old school. My question: The Circuitron Tortoise Switch Machine is used on DCC track systems only? Can it be used on a DC track system? I need to replace my old Atlas Snap Relays with a good switching unit on my DC track layout. Someone please explain.
