*This crossing replaces both the SL-8364 and the SL-E8364 crossings.
This crossing features authentic tie sizes and spacings, plus a fine scale representation of rail spikes. The design is scaled down from A.R.E.A. (American Railway Engineering Association) prototype drawings and conforms to N.M.R.A. standards. The Peco Code 83 #6 Crossing features the new Unifrog format in lieu of an Insulfrog or Electrofrog setup.
The wiring of the new crossings and turnouts is a combination of both the Insulfrog and Electrofrog designs. The stock rails are wired to the center rails from the factory, which in turn are connected to the corresponding frog-rail. This means the crossing/turnout is completely live (except for the tip of the frog) with no extra wiring required. If the turnout is being used as a switch to isolate a section of track then it is a simple job to remove the wire that joins the center rail and stock rail and it will work like a current Insulfrog.

What is a Unifrog?
For current users of the Electrofrog or Insulfrog versions of Peco's turnouts, the new Unifrog format gives modelers the best of both worlds. Out of the package, the turnout is wired completely "live", except for the frog tip and wing rails. It can be used straight out of the packet without any further modification (and so behaves like an Insulfrog). If desired, the modeler can choose to electrify the frog and wing rails by connecting the pre-welded wires as shown in the included instructions.
