I cleaned up the lever frame and cranks, something that could be done one handed though there is improvement.

Looking at the lever frame I realised that what I had was an on-off switch and that I need to supply a passing contact from an off-on -off switch. This lever frame is not best suited for that so, perhaps it's best to go back to the DCC Concepts levers, of which I have 12.

Circuit component Electronic component Cylinder Passive circuit component Electric blue

The box contains leads and other stuff to get the levers working. The website claims, "They have an incredible versatility: Incorporating one SPDT changeover switch for solenoid or momentary power contact operations and two make-before-break SPDT On-On changeover switches they can literally operate ANY electrical or electronic device that has ever been invented for use on a model railway… " so they can do exactly what I need. Now all I have to do is find out where I have hidden them in the garage.
