PECO SL-U396F N Code 55 Unifrog Left Hand Medium Radius Turnout
Peco SL-U396F Medium Radius Finescale Unifrog Left Hand Turnout
PECO Streamline N Gauge Code 55 - Universal Fine trackage system
Despite a low visible rail height of just 1.4mm, all brands of N Gauge model locomotives will run on this track. The ingenious rail section of PECO 55 combines strength and durability with a highly realistic appearance and uses the same universal rail joiners as Code 80: the geometry of this range has been cleverly designed to make it easy to build convenient, complex and aesthetically pleasing formations. These turnouts are constructed in our new versatile Unifrog design which can be operated, powered and switched like an Electrofrog or left unpowered if preferred.
- Length: 137mm
- Frog Angle: 10 Degrees
- Radius: 457mm
Recommended to be used with:
- SL-310 Conducting Rail Joiners: Nickel Silver for PECO Code 80/55 track
- SL-311 Insulated Rail Joiners for PECO Code 80/55 track
- SL-14 Track Fixing Pins: Chemically blackened mild steel for unobtrusively pinning down trackwork
UNIFROG combines the features of both Insulfrog and Electrofrog. As supplied the turnouts operate like an Insulfrog: the tip of the frog is a separate, isolated section, so will be dead when connected to a live layout. However, a wire has been welded to the underside of the frog tip that gives the modeller the option of "powering" the frog, i.e. connecting it to a microswitch, or changeover switch, which allows the frog tip to change polarity according to the direction for which the turnout is set. It's a much more versatile option for modellers, as it does not require any additional insulated breaks as these have been incorporated into the turnout. The opportunity has also been taken to modify the design slightly to include the sleepers at both ends of the unit.
