Wiring a Three Way Point

The diagram below shows, initially, the point with all switch blades in mid throw.
Move your cursor on and off the blocks below left to see the effect of switching the point.
Note that each colour represents an electrical section of the point.
If the switches, SW1 & SW2, are not present and the switch blades aren't touching the stock rails
then there will be no connection between the sections.
