I use a plug in system when I want to run DC locos on my Live Steam track.
One "male" plug [from the track] plugs into a "female" socket on the wire from whichever controller I wish to use.
I use 12v "caravan type" plugs ....available from most decent Camping,Caravan & Outdoor etc,etc Stores.
A three way switch [12v] would prob'ly solve your problem ...but tbh,I feel that my system is better/safer [less chance of error] ....if live steam voltage gets into your DCC controller,I dread to think of the consequences.....with a plug,its disconnected ...end of problem.
