What happens when a train is stopped over the insulated rails? Is the switch motor stuck on?
Sure, I guess it would be. We thought about making provisions to address this but ultimately the moving train never stops, if it was stopped it would be away from the insulated sections. Also, I had a separate power supply feeding the switch machines and was using the least amount of voltage to throw the switch. The LGB switch motor is very robust and never even got warm after hours of continuous running.
