Small symmetrical short switch code 100 Peco SL97 Insulfrog with a length of 148 mm, an angle of 24° and a deflection radius of 610 mm.
The Peco brand of track offers a broad range of track for building a model train layout.
The British company is known for its code 100 and 75 scale track HO 1/87 .
The track sections are made of maillechort (an alloy of copper and brass), materials that offer very high electrical conductivity and do not oxidize (easier rail cleaning).
Peco's HO 1/87 scale turnouts are available in two technologies:Insulfrog and Electrofrog.
Insulfrog models have a core point made of plastic (and therefore not electrically powered). These turnouts are recommended for model train systems in analog operation (conventional transformer power supply).
Electrofrog models have a metallic core point (allowing for better power pickup from locomotives). Thus, at low speeds, the engines run more smoothly. These turnouts are recommended for model train networks in digital operation (digital power supply).
The turnout deviation system allows the turnout to be motorized with several types of motors:
A tabletop motor reference Peco PL11 which is placed next to the turnout on the track plan.
An under-table motor part number Peco PL1000/PL1001 that sits below the layout support for unobtrusive installation.
The HO 1/87 scale Peco straight turnouts come in three lengths: short, medium and long.
