    I have decided to use the Atlas C55 track, what does powering the frog do for operation besides powering the frog to prevent hiccups of some locomotives?

    Thanks, Dave:) :)

    That's what it does, other than making you do the work to power it!

    Links to sites or threads that shows how to do this powering of frogs would be appreciated :wave:
    I use Peco turnouts and are about to do this powering and I´m confused about it :rolleyes:

    I would like to add another question to the thread: How important is it to power the frog? Specifically, I am using Atlas Code83 turnouts with the insulated metal frogs.

    most larger engines will not have a problem, but smaller 4 wheel ones really benefit from a powered frog (Smoother crossing).
