Peco Electrofrog turnouts (3 way)
« on: January 14, 2012, 10:53:59 AM »

So on my recent sojourn to the UK, I picked up 2 Peco Electrofrog switches and one 3 way switches, which I now find out isn't really what I'm looking for. I got Peco specifically so I wouldn't have to use switch machines (hold over feature) and the instructions on the 3 way switch are designed for use with something like a tortoise or DPDT switches, which I don't want to use. So my questions are:

1) is there a simple way to fix this?

If not,
2) do they make the 3 way in insulfrog?

And if they do,

3) Anyone wanna trade?

Thoughts?

Wow, I never knew that they made a three way switch.
Just so I get this right, your saying that the three way has no hold over like the standard switches?
Or am I reading it wrong. :)

Check out BLW.  They just listed a bunch of new code 55 Peco including the 3 way and several slip switches, etc.

Not quite Jon. The 3 way -does- have the hold overs, which is why I got it. I didn't want to use a switch machine.

Russ,

The frog's are powered via the points like their std electrofrog turnouts.

How you throw the points is up to you.
