The track formation I am working on at present contains two crossovers including one tandem turnout and there will be three crossovers if I ever get that far. One other concern with these juicers is that it would appear that there is a potential for a loco to be driven over a wrongly set turnout in the trailing direction
I liked the simplicity of the Frog Juicer so decided to try one on Fryers Lane. There is a noticeable spark when a wheel makes contact with the common crossing which has put me off using them again in future.
Yes, you can drive through an incorrectly set turnout in the trailing direction, first sign of something being wrong is a derailment; although suppose you could argue that is more realistic than coming to a dead stop due to a short at the vee if polarity is switched by more traditional methods.
