First off what kind of engine and tender is doing it. Do you have more engines? Do they all do it?
thank you for responding, it is a 2-8-4 Berkshire steam locomotive and tender. the switch handle does move, it actually just flips the switch over like its suppose to do it.

It's supposed to flip by your hand :D and not when a train passes over it. Go with what T said and secure it a little then see if it happens.

As I don't have any fast track and never did I don't know much about fast track.

But if it has an anti derailing built in you might need some fiber (plastic) pins maybe??
