Notes on wiring a Double Crossover:

Wiring a double crossover can be a bit of a challenge.  A detailed schematic and description of how to wire a double crossover built using a Fast Tracks fixture using four Tortoise switch machines can be found on our discussion forum at the link below.  This will work for both DC and DCC operations.

Wiring a Double Crossover for DC and DCC

A simpler alternative is to use a Hex Frog Juicer, which will automatically handle all the electrical routing for the frogs by simply soldering a single wire to each frog, the Frog Juicer will handle the rest!  For DCC only.  These are available from Fast Tracks at the link below....
