    I am looking to automate my layout. Does anyone have a good source for low voltage solenoids?

    Hiya - what type of application do you need the solenoids? Slow / fast ? You could check on ebay under pinball parts and accessories - I know those babies are loaded with that stuff. Some will come with springs, some will have 2 coils, an in coil and an out coil. Hope that helped.

    Michael: Thanks for the response. I am looking for the double throw solenoids used on the Lionel switches. I have a number of manual switches that I want to try converting. I also have other applications that I want to play with. I will check ebay. Any additional info will be greatly appreciated.
