I use this diagram on our console.   Very easy to make... 


Its Half wave off of  the16 -24v A/C 60hz cyc.  And doesn't hurt the D/C Switch Motor.   Now its converted to about  8 - 12v D/C,  plus or minus for motor direction with either one of your momentary connections. 

I went to Radio Shack and picked up a package of Red momentary push button SW.  and a couple of Diodes and you are in business.. ( Note: One Diodes goes one way and the other one goes in the opposite direction. )  
Then find an old train  transformer  or  use off of your A/C  accessory  terminals on your pack :rolleyes:
Happy R.R.
