Wiring question

2165 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  gunrunnerjohn
Here is my latest dilemma. What gage of wire should I use for my switches and power to my track? How many places should I connect power to on the main line? Each of my sidings will have its own power but I have heard I should have several points where power is connected. Incidently I have 15 turnouts. Should I make sure I have power connected on each end of these turnouts?

You need both wires of the bus along the entire run of track, or at least close to it. I have my ceiling track looking like about 75 running feet of dual-track, so I'll have quite a bit of wire up there. :D
