Hi all,

I also asked this question in my 'Track Planning' Forum Thread. 

I've been re-designing the turnout motor control board,
with knowledge I obtained from using the prototype version.  

Testing turnout control,
I've realized that I need a spring/latch mechanism of some sort,
to hold a turnout firmly in its set position.  

I'm using LGB G-scale turnouts,
the manual spring mechanism just isn't firm enough to hold it in position,
once I turn off servo power after the movement.  

Has anyone seen a product or design for such a mechanism,
that they would recommend?
