After 125 years in business The Frog and Switch Company ceased operations. “The company initially manufactured frogs, switches and other railroad components,” The Frog, Switch and Manufacturing Company said in the news release. “A frog is a special section of rail that allows a train to cross over or to “switch” tracks. By the end of the 1960′s, railroad parts were phased out and more profitable crushing and grinding wear parts were introduced. Frog, Switch was for many decades a dominant player in the North American aggregate and mining industries as a supplier of parts for rock crushers.”
