Atlas O Switches - Best Practices

I'm building a new layout and have moved from Super-O to Atlas.  I recently installed 14 new Atlas O72 Switches on the layout... all good, so far.   I do not like the Atlas switch controls and I am getting ready to build a control panel (my first) and those controllers have to go... but, before I get to the control panel...

I need an overall best practices (or, what works for you) on the Atlas switch (not Ross, not Fastrack etc.).   For instance, do you put a power feed on both ends of the switch and a power feed to the turnout?   Do you use a Capacitor Discharge Unit to throw the switches?  What else have you done to improve the Atlas switch experience?

Any and all opinions, tips, tricks and photos are greatly appreciated!!!

Thank you,

dennis
