This was my FIRST time with any Bullfrog kit! To be honest, I had been wary for several years, because I found the wood construction a little suspect...
HOWEVER, after seeing Bullfrog turnout "motors" under two Club Layouts, including one that had a couple of pre-teen boys being as abusive as they could try! This went on for about 15-20 minutes, until a Club member finally stopped them...
(I NEVER interfere with children not related to me - it's not the 80's anymore!)
Anyway, I went back to those two turnouts. One know had roughly 1/4 of it broken off. It was odd in that it appeared that whoever built it, managed to line up the woodgrain in ALL of the parts of that knob! (Possible assembly tip?)
I then operated both turnouts. Incredibly, they both operated flawlessly smooth!!
The push-pull of the knows was firm, smooth, and with a solid click every time the ball locked into position.
So, it was easy to surmise that I would never POUND on them that hard, and was permanently sold!
So, as soon as I can afford it, they will be operating everything but my two reverse loops.
They went together very easily. I wanted to insure long term strength, so I used yellow Wood Glue instead of White.
I highly recommend Bullfrog Products!
