Model Railroads/wiring a crossing signal


I have a crossing signal with a bell made by Mar Lines.  I have a push button accessory controller No. 1605 or I have a automatic accessories contactor no.145 C. I would like to see a diagram or instructions on how to wire my signal.

Larry, I'm sorry I have not responded sooner.  I am a little weak in knowledge and literature on MarLines although I have a bit of equipment.  I did some research and could not identify the No 1605 controller you mentioned.  And I think the 145C is a Lionel part isn't it?

If I can find out anything I will respond later.

I do not sell any trains only collect so I do no have train clents. I have in the past sold many old electro-mechanical pinball machines and there have been many customers who have alled me back years later to get one fixed. This is an art that you don't find much any more and the commercial shops charge too much to get a machine fixed. I just try to keep them fixed so that they don't disapear ore are discarded.
