    Hey guys I'm building a new layout and finnaly switching to DCC, I need to know which works better for switches and how to wire them. PECO ELCTRIC FROGS OR INSUL FROGS
    Which will work better?
    Thanks for any input you all can give

    Well, I've never used Peco turnouts but you can use both live or insulated frogs with DCC. A lot of it depends on how you want to wire it. I'd recommend using the Insulfrog turnouts and Tortoise switch machines. The tortoises have an internal switch you can wire to power the insulated frog.
