    I am new to the game and I am trying to figure out how the wiring works to control Kato turnouts with a control panel and toggles.
    I have watch tutorials on how to build the control panel but have not been able to find a resource on how to wire the panel.
    I will be using DCC to run the trains but don't want to use DCC to control the turnouts.
    Is this as simple as running the wires from each turnout to the designated toggle on the board?
    Any resources would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Here is a really nice video that explains how to use toggle switches to control Kato turnouts.

    I chose to use the Kato turnout switched. Combined with the Kato turnout the are flawless in operation.

    Good luck and welcome to the hobby.
