  • Very Small Mounting Footprint - One of the smallest undermount footprints available
  • Solid, Robust Operation - Thoroughly tested to over 100,000 operations!

  • Control wire
  • 1 SPDT microswitch
  • All screws, nuts & washers

To assemble the switch you will need white glue. a modeling knife, fine sandpaper, #2 philips screwdriver, and about 15 minutes of time. (The first one may take you a bit longer.)

The BullFrog is easy to mount under your layout with just two screws and will work with all scales from Z to O. The control wire offers high torque and a long throw, making it easy to mount the control with minimal alignment problems.

Use your own control rod, or purchase the control rod kit to connect the BullFrog to your control panel using a a nylon control rod that includes a Z bend connector, and decorative knob. We also offer a number of additional accessories.

This product is an excellent alternative to electronic switch controls. The folks at Fast Tracks were very accomodating and helped me solve my problems.

I am converting from electronic turnout control to manual for a more "hands-on" feel and the Bullfrog turned out to be just what I needed. Great quality and very easy to assemble. Can't beat the price either considering the alternatives. I was even able to add an extra linkage to operate my switch stands! Great product!

This was the first time I have used a Fast Tracks product, and I was very pleased with both the assembly and the installation of the Bullfrog turnout machine. The control rod was also a breeze to install. Now that the Bullfrog has solved one of my turnout problems, I am now finding other places to use them.
