No I had not. I just went down stairs and tested. I ran a State set through the switch backwards. Observation car first. No problem. I guess they are not really spring loaded as it remained in the position they were pushed into. My turnouts are not wired in because I am lazy or work to much. I would imagine even though I pushed the turnout to the open position I think the controls will show the turnout closed. Not sure, can someone actually test that part of it.
