Re: electrofrog points

Thank's for replies.

electrofrog points

laying track for DCC use.
Have 4 points all leading off to individual 4 sidings.
Do I have to place plastic rail joiners to each frog point as they all lead to a dead end.
Can I fit normal metal joiners to all point outlets leading to dead ends ?
