Some familiar with Tam Valley Octo controller would serve me well here.
I am trying to automate a turnout that is running an automated three point reversing circuit (A to B, B to A, A to C and Finally C to A) I need the turnout to throw automatically ... Any ideas? I am using Tam valley turnout controllers so most of this is ready to go I just don't want to have to push a button to throw the turnout.

One thing that I have thought of is a feather micro switch under the track. But what I do not know is what are the ramifications and implication for the switch being depressed for over a minute.
