When I installed the turntable at Port Rowan, I used a Lenz LK100 to handle polarity reversing for the bridge rails. This came from a previous layout and worked fine – for the time.
But having experienced first-hand the super-fast, super-quiet, microprocessor-driven Hex Frog Juicer from Duncan Mcree at Tam Valley Depot, I was mildly annoyed by the slightly-slower, somewhat-noisy, relay-based Lenz product. (To be fair to Lenz, the LK100 has been on the market for a while and served me very well. But as we all know, All Things Electronic get smaller, cheaper, and faster – in pretty much no time at all these days.)
So, I ordered a Dual Frog Juicer – which can also be used to manage reversing sections on DCC-equipped layouts – from Tim Warris at Fast Tracks. It arrived today and before you could say, well, “Dual Frog Juicer”, I had it installed on the layout:
(For those wondering, the masonite shelf above the circuit is there to offer some protection from any drips from above during eventual scenery work. No point in gumming up the works with gluey ballast or Sculptamold.)
Works great – thanks Duncan!
