After a two-year break from trains due to a sudden change in work location, I am finally back and have started working on the layout again.

Recently I purchased from Fast Tracks a number of BullFrog Manual Turnout Control and I thought I would share my experience of assembling a control unit.

So here is what I ordered: a 10 pack of control and push rods.
