QUOTE I would also like to know where the insulating breaks go
I take the easy way out and insulate all 8 ends of the rails where they join to their neighbours. Then I feed the point as a single section in its own right. Since I use DCC, this isn't a problem for me. If I was using DC and section switches, I would join it to the section feeding the single incoming track.

A summary for DC with reference to the drawing below would be:

Insulate all rails at the top of the diagram.
Feed the power from the adjoining section at the bottom.


Here's the essence of my reply in the blogs section

If you look at the image in the gallery, there is text which provides more information - link

You do have to switch power to the frog. There is no way around if. You could use manual switches but I think the inconvenience would soon drive you to motorising this one point and it will require two motors.
