I'm pretty new to Minecraft and redstone stuff so I'm trying to figure out how to make a closed circuit from a lever that will turn off moments after you switch it.
I've figured out how to make the redstone travel and turn on the railway switch. My overall goal is to be able to go down the pink path on a cart, be slowed down to a stop by the powered rail hit an initial switch that will turn the rail from path A (marked by the gray terracotta) to path B (marked by the black and red terracotta.), where I can then move to another powered rail to send me on my way.
So I guess what I am asking is: How do I make it so that the switch will turn the railway and then switch it back after I have moved past it? And since the powered rails are there to stop the cart on one rail and then boost after the switch, will I have to do the same for the those on each side of the rail switch as well?
