Question

Learned Colleagues....

 

Just wondering who might be an expert on the above. I am hoping to put together an 009 gauge layout at some stage in the future, which would have in total some 30 - 35 turnouts arranged over five stations - one reasonably sized terminus and four other small ones. I am aware that wiring these is not at all like wiring traditional turnouts with insulated frogs (á la Peco Streamline).

 

I am sure we have an expert among us who might be able to assist me with advice?

You will need an auxiliary switch on the point motor to switch the polarity on the frog when the point switches. Its they way forward as it makes the point very reliable and you are not relying on the connection from the side of the rail to the side of the blade of the point to transfer power.
