I just picked up a right and a left #6. So far they seem to work nicely and the mechanism seems vastly improved over the older 11.25 turnouts I have.

On the back of the card are directions and a photo for guidance on how to power/unpower the frog. However on both turnouts there is physically nothing there. No mounting point, no screw, no wires.

I'm getting slight hesitation as it goes through the turnout even with a longish steamer with tender pickup. Just curious as to how I can check if the frog is powered (duh I can use a meter) but I'm curious as the difference between the packaging and the actual turnout.

I think I have answered my own question. The new #6 turnout is neither power routing nor does it have a powered frog.

Ya think that's kinda deceptive having that information on the back about how to power the frog?
