Don,

 

Thanks for sending this out.  I can read my emails on my iPhone, but sending much of a response from one is difficult.  They don’t allow personal email on computers at work and have all the personal email servers blocked.  So the best I can do is either wait until I get home, or hope you or someone else beats me to it.

 

Now we just need to have a chat with the person at Walthers handing out bad info!

 

Allan

Not quite true. You simply need to isolate the frog rails of the Electro frog turnouts with an insulating joined and power the frog with switch. Do not rely on the points to do that.
