    I hope you all will be patient with me. Can't seem to find the answer to this online. Thinking of setting up a small L-shaped loop to loop 0-27 trolley layout. Are manual switch tracks made so they will "float", and not have to be thrown each time the trolley passes? It would be nice to have a Christmas display with this hands-off capability, so the trolley would circle each reversing loop in a different direction each time. Can this be done?

    I haven't had new O-27 switches for 50 years (!) but I don't think the manual switches have any sort of trail-through feature. The last ones I had would provide a dead track to keep the train from driving through it.
    The better remote-control switches did have a resetting mechanism.
