The material was copyrighted in 1994, now 7 almost 8 years old. I wish the author had an email address in the book. Does anyone else know if he has email? The LOTS circuit in there uses photocells which are much too large for N gauge. There are microminiature reed switches that will work well. But the LOTS circuit has errors in it when it comes to the reed switch conversion which he reports will also work with the circuit.Kato makes an automatic switch circuit that uses mechanical contacts. The author advises staying away from mechanical contacts but the Kato unit seems well built, reliable, and it seems to work well.
