Re: Peco double slip insulfrog

hi
I am new myself but my simple understanding is that insulfrog will work
straight out of the box but you will suffer a dead spot especially with slow
moving shunting locos with limited pickup whereas electofrog requires a
little reworking but offers much better continuity of traction current. A
full explantion with diagrams is available on the turnouts section of the
WiringForDCC page.

I am new to DCC. Why does insulfrog or electrofrog matter in terms of
wiring for DCC.
