Reply to "Ross Standard Gauge Switch anti-derail"

Power needs to be cut off to switch coils after turnout is set to route.

Lionel & MTH uses wiping fingers contracts on Standard Gauge switches to do this.

Switch attached to points throwbar could be add to the Ross switch throwbar.

A stalling motor type switch motor like tortoise can not burn out and maybe the best choice.

Atlas O sells a electronic board to also prevent burnouts, that may work with standard gauge switches with twin coil mechs.
