I'm trying to wire a Peco insulfrog double slip to make it more DCC
friendly. Any suggestions? Thanks, Elliott

Hi
I am not sure that you have to do anything with it other than power it.
If you look at the diagram on the wiring for turnouts page then compare it
with the peco insul slip its exactly the same. I haven't laid mine yet but
thats how I see it at the moment. If anybody knows any different please tell
me..................John

John, Dale Glower talks about the electrofrog double slip not needing much. Since the insulfrogs of regular type are even more friendly, am assuming correctly that nothing has to be done for the double slip either? In looking at it and using it , it seems that way. I guess throwing jumpers in would help it also. Thanks for the answer. Elliott

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

thanks

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.
