I was poking around in my garage tonight and ran across my 1st train set! and loads of Nscale bachmann eztrack. Anyway I was wondering back to when i was a little boy when I got the set, why would my train stall on the turnouts it was very hard for a kid not knowing why my turn outs didt well turnout, as I got a little older I packed up the old N scale set and track and move on to being a rock and roller, letting the set collect dust. Jump ahead 15 years Im now what most people call a "grown up" at 25, and back into the train hobby, and in a big way, now that my rock and roller day have rolled a away. that bring me back to the garage as I was finding my old Nscale stuff track, and rolling stock, I wondered with all i know about turnouts now I bet they were live frog turn outs, and at the time i got them I didt have the stuff to switch there poles........ I was right there they were live frogs and all 15 years later!
