Queen's Park continued their fantastic start to the season with a thrilling win at a rain-soaked Hampden.
The Spiders struck after 14 minutes when defender Richard Sinclair side-footed home from a corner.
County's Iain Anderson dived to nod his side level but Trouten later crossed for Steven Canning to slam home.
Mick Dunlop then set up Robert Dunn to slide the ball in from eight yards but Mark McCulloch ensured a tense finish when he fired in from close range.
