Re: Older Shinohara Turnout Confusion

It is interesting to note that if one flips all 4 throwbars to either be straight or 'X-over' there is no need to worry about shorts at the frogs. No special gaps required or other bonding wires. Yes this does rely on the rail points for making good electrical contact. The exception of course is that older wheel sets with over sized flanges or ones out of gauge may still lick an opposite polarity rail on the back side. Not totally 'DCC Friendly' according to the letters but mine give flawless performance.
