    Hi Stuart,  yes it was the simpicity that i liked too.  When i saw the video with the switch under the baseboard whilst it hid the switch it looked more complicated.    For my first attempt i’m happy to have a partially submerged switch with the lever raised, but your comment about the man hole cover got me thinking and i’ve just googled and you can get dummy point motors from peco which might be attachable to the switch lever.

    I’m very interested to know how you get on with your experiments

    You say DPDT switches above.  I was only planning to use SPDT switches, (3 terminal ON-ON), is there a reason for the DPDT, are you controlling a signal or is it a typo?  Just curious…
