Z-1000/Lionel O22 Switch Machine Control kit – Full contents with instructions.
This control panel kit provides positive, reliable indication of single or multiple Z-1000 switch machines. Unlike the Z-1002, this unit is fully buffered form the Z-1000 Switch Machine. The control PCB has the ability to support an additional pair of indicator LEDs. In addition, signals may also be controlled with the switch position without loading down the Z-1000 switch machine.
Lionel O22 Switch Machine Control
With a different mini-toggle switch the above unit can support remote operation of 3-Rail Lionel switches. Just choose this option below. Any problems? Well, it will not fix a poor operating O22, but works great with a single switch.
This control unit mounts below/behind the control panel. Only three holes are needed for the two LEDs and the momentary contact switch. The kit includes the control board with screw terminals, miniature toggle switch and red/green LEDs mounted on PCB for ease in installation. The PCB control board mounts on the back of the control panel with double sided tape. If an additional pair of LEDs will be lit, these are driven directly form the control board. All details of the installation possibilities are included in the instructions including example wiring diagrams.
The Z-1000 controllers are great. All in a small package and look much better than the Lionel controllers. Also much more reliable in operation.

Bought a couple of the Z-1000 controllers. They work better than the original controllers!
