Switch issue

I am using Atlas Snap Track switches. I have two right hand ones connected to allow my trains to switch tracks. Both are wired to the same switch. My thought was that when the switch is moved both of the turnouts should move in-sync. Unfortunately this only occurs some of the time. Other times only one of the two switches move. I have redone the wiring and it all appears to be correct. These are being powered off of the transformer for the train. Is it possible that there is not enough juice to move two at once? If the amount of juice is not the issue then what might be? Both move freely by hand so I know nothing is binding.

Many of mine are on tortoises, but quite a few are still "snap switches". I've not had a problem, But I don't use Atlas switches any more either.
