look into the Altas Snap Relay. It gets wired in parallel with your switch motor, and will work with the EZ track. You'll have to do some modifications to your wiring, the leads to the relay need to be spliced into your control circuit. But that's a simple modification any model railroader of reasonable skill should be able to tackle.

Intstructions on how to wire the snap relay to control signal lights are included with the relay.

the atlas snap relay worked but the power supply I had was to small to run the switch and the relay at the same time will try a larger unit and let you know
