Reply to "Atlas Switches for reversing loops"

Out of the box, the Atlas switches won’t automatically switch their thrown position like the Fastrack switches do.  However, the points are sprung so if a train goes through a switch that is thrown the wrong way, each set of wheels on the train will move the points so the train does not derail.  As each wheel set passes the points spring back to the initially thrown position.  I have occasionally run a train through a switch that was thrown in the wrong direction and never had a derailment, but I don’t know how reliable the spring return would be in constant usage.
