    I have a Lionel Engine running with TMCC...current setup is just a loop around the tree.....what additional items do I need to be able to throw switches (other than the remote switches) using the TMCC? I assume you have to have the $70 remote switches to be able to control them through the TMCC....any other less expensive options?

    Regular O gauge switches are less expensive, but then you're looking at the cost of adapter sections for all three sides of the switch. At $5 each, you might save a little money but not a lot.

    Yes, you will need Lionel's TMCC Accessory Switch Contgroller or TMCC SC2 Switch Controller. Remote switches are reuired too.
