I'm using a mix of Bluepoint and Bullfrog manual switch machines.

Both have advantages, but if I were to commit to one right now, it would be the Bullfrog- the throw is more positive, they're less expensive an they a rugged (and clever) design.

I go down one wire size - the wire that comes with it - its too strong for 1.25" subroadbed. As a side note, I go up one wire size with the Bluepoints.
