On my current layout I use Peco Electrofrog turnouts and switch machines with SPDT contacts to power the frogs. I am running my layout on DCC and use stationary decoders to control the switch machines. This setup works without any problems. But I learned that I don’t like to use the throttle to control the turnouts. It’s a sort of overkill to me. I spend more time looking at my throttle selecting turnouts than looking at my trains. So for my next layout I want to go back to a more simple solution like a switch in the fascia close to the turnout or even ground throws and no switch machines at all. I want to use Atlas Code 83 track and custom line turnouts (I think it looks better than Peco track). If I use ground throws with these turnouts and do not power route the frogs, I fear that especially my smaller and lighter engines might stall when running over the frogs. I never used ground throws and I don’t know if I am getting into trouble if I decide to use them. That leads me to my question (phew, a long take-off ): do you power route your frogs and what are your experiences?
