    I'm building a test track for a model railroad but have no electronics knowlege. I have a 6 position rotary switch rated at .3A and 125VAC. I need to handle switching 15VDC and 8A.

    Should I be looking elsewhere?

    I'd really like to understand how all this works, but words on paper and on screen just seem like so much jumble when it comes to electronics.
