Re: Frog juicer as auto reverser with staggered pickup locomotives

It should not matter.

Frog juicers work by detecting short circuits at the track level.  It happens when a metal flanged wheel bridges between rail connected to the frog and rail the feeds the frog.  That is independent of how the locomotive picks up track power.

Is there an installation trick I could use to get the device to work with brass steam locomotives?
