    I meant to say, 153c contactors. My mistake.

    I’ m not familiar with this particular Lionel product, but as I understand it, and as you probably know, the contactors are intended to be placed underneath the track and are operated by the weight of the train passing over them. So it ought to work ok. Best thing to do is to set up the switch tower and contactor next to a piece of insulated track and press down and see if it works! Good luck.
