Now that more and more layouts are using Digital Command Control, we've revised our entire selection of turnouts to make them DCC-Friendly. These new versions feature electrically isolated frogs and points to eliminate polarity problems that may cause short circuits when decoder-equipped locos or cars with metal wheels enter the turnout.
These drop-in replacements for existing Walthers Code 83 products come fully assembled with:
Isolated frog with built-in connection; an access point allows you to convert to a live frog if desired
Powered points with correct polarity
Improved point clearance gaps to prevent short circuits from metal wheelsets
Insulated tie bar
Tab reinforcement to hold points more securely
Option to power frog through switch machines
