Toggle between 2 timelines

I am trying to toggle between 2 timelines using a 3rd timeline. 1 timeline hides a box (making the height and width scale 0%) and the 2nd shows the box (making the scales 100% again).

The key is, I need 1 timeline I can fire which will toggle between hide and show.

I have put 1 and 2 in the 3rd timeline called Toggle and put Pause timeline and Continue between them (I suspect this is where I may have got it wrong).

Would appreciate any help!

Thanks

on timeline Toggle
one action to start timline hide + pause timeline toggle.
one action to start timline show + pause timeline toggle.

On the button set its action to continue timeline and can restart timeline.
