Walthers - disconnecting the point rails

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Wiring for DCC : One Thread

Hi Guys Could someone help me.. I am only learning about how to install a shinohara turnout on my HO code 83 layout. I was given breif instructions at the hobby shop but now im very very confused does anyone know how to electrically isolate the point rails?? or do you have to ?? the way I see it... when the frog is isolated (as I was told to do) there is no power to the rails,, but If I use jumpers.. which i tried.. its short city! UNLESS you can or are supossed to islolate the t point rails from each other.. could someone help with a diagram or words.......
