Re: insulfrog or electrofrog ?

John Bishop

Having used both, I strongly believe in powering the frogs, as I have on my home layout. Its not hard. With Tortoise machines, there are contacts to do that. With Switchmasters (which I use) there is a microswitch available.  And if the control is near the switch, just use a DPDT to change to polarity of the frog when you throw the switch.  In case it matters, I'm in O scale.

I use Insulfrogs and have never had a problem.

I agree with Denny. I have just laid track and points on a new OO gauge is all Peco Streamline SL-100 Electrofrog. Yes, the wiring is more complicated but the locos run beautifully.

If one subscribes to DCC Best Practice of leaving no track or rail segment unpowered (I have, and I do), then Electrofrog is your choice. You will never, ever regret it
