Bill-

You asked-
"Can you explain about the "frogs". Does the Car weight pull the Pole along the wire and through a turnout?"

I don't know why you used the word "weight", but the movement of the car, and the position of the pole (caused by the movement of the car, and where on the car the pole is mounted) relative to the position of the frog, guides the pole down the correct wire.

One of the things that causes the most trouble for first time wire hangers, I will cover it in as much detail as I can in one of the last installments.

Meanwhile, your question means to me that you are interested, and that you are thinking ahead- both satisfying to me.

Herb  :old dude:
