How do I change track direction?

I want to make an automatic railroad. When I stand on a pressure plate I want a cart to arrive within a few seconds. To do this I have setup a self resetting booster. At the end of the booster I have a pressure plate with redstone wire to change the track direction. However once the redstone changes the initial track direction it never goes back once I step off the pressure plate. (See below)

Am I doing something wrong? Is this happening because of the South-West rule?


This is happening because you need at least one block of redstone to point “towards” the track, you can’t just run parallel to it. Hopefully this awesome paint diagram will explain what I mean:
