there is another option.The thought of running over an unsprung/uncontrolled point may be scary and daunting. I was very wary when I first tried it under power. After the first few passes and seeing that the blades were holding against the stock rail, I relaxed and enjoyed the variation of route.
while a manual LGB turnout lever snaps back after been cut open. the electric LGB turnout motors snap to the other side, when cut open and stay that way.
so with an electric motor (without cable connection) one gets the same result like without any lever. - but the electric lever presses the movable rail against the stockrail. the possibility of half-closed turnouts is thus eliminated.
