Thanks for the reply donV.
I set up a test passing siding track with Peco code 83
insulfrog turnouts & wonder why it is said these
turnouts are not power routing?With the tracks lined up
for the main line the siding is dead.If I turn 1 or the
other turnout for the siding it has power.
Is this not power routing.
No insulated joints used only nickel silver.

> As long as you know the drill about when to isolate
the frog rails on turnouts that power route and are sure
that the Peco turnout you are adding does not power route,
there is no need to supply any gaps or insulated joiners
to extend power from Track #1 to the other stub sidings.
Simply wire the new turnout and siding tracks from the
track power wires of #1, and they simply become an
extension of track #1.
