    Nornally it kicks the contacter out which isn't reset until the handle is re-engaged. Maybe a contacter could work here?

      I think with Captain K's test above, the best approach now would be Noitoen's suggestion of using the original control design and just using one of the contact sets from each contactor to control FWD, Stop and REV. This is a proven control design and you have all the parts.
