Tam Valley Depot Dual 3-way is featured in the cover article of the March 2012 Model-Railroad Hobbyist E-zine! I wrote an extensive article on how I installed an operating semaphore on my Donner Summit layout. Download the issue by clicking on the image.
Dual 3-way III
The dual 3-way can be used to control 2 servos with 3 positions each. Typical uses are semaphores and 3-way stub switches. Comes with 2 I/O connectors that are used to connect to your signal system and/or indicator LEDs (or just use DCC).

How to mount your servos to operate a dual-bladed semaphore using the L-brackets. The view is from the bottom below the semaphore. The two actuating wires will come up through the hole to be attached to the servo arms.

Here are some shots of the coming Dual 3-Way Servo Driver being used to drive a Tomar upper-quadrant semaphore. The action is controlled by a Logic Rail Tech Signal Animator both of which can be purchased here.

Here is a photo sequence showing the Dual 3-Way driving a 3-way stub switch. Thanks to Jason Reis for building the switch for me. The Hex Frog Juicer would be the ideal way to power the 3 frogs.
