    Got a question -
    Assume N scale, DC control and Peco turnouts - what needs to be considered when deciding which kind to use - Insulfrog or Electrofrog?

    Hi Bill,
    I would always go with Electrofrog, with Insulfrog, there is the chance that you will stall a short wheelbased loco but with Electrofrogs, this won't happen. Apart from that, they are both as good. With Insulfrog, all you will need is one pair of wires to power the whole layout, with the Electrofrogs, this is a different ball game and block control will be the order of the day. If I can help further friend, just ask.
