Has any body experience problems with the auxiliary contacts, We have several on our 0 gauge layout and have been noticing at least a 50% drop of voltage
between the rail voltage and that of the frog while running DCC. the spec for the points reads: 1 amp switching and max 4 amps normal.
We have had to introduce 10 amp rated relays between the tortoise and the rails/frogs.

It would be interesting to hear from anybody if they have experienced any problems, the actual points action has been faultless it's just the auxiliary contacts.
