: My Dad use to have the same system. What are you trying to figure out. From what I remember, each relay had two wires (hot and neutral) for power and three wires to feed the switch (one common, one for on, and one for off). These are still made (as of 10 years ago). I talked to the engineer at the company (Remco I think) and he said that they were coming out with a solid state version that was more reliable. Things are expensive ($30, ten years ago. Try a good electric supply store. If this sounds like what you have let me know what your questions are.
We had the same system. My Dad installed it in 1959. The manufacturer was Remcon. Once in a while a relay went out. But the big advantage was that you could run a switch anywhere using the 3-wire once the relay was in place. No such thing as 3-way switches.
