I found some connectors I really like

I purchased some identical looking connectors on eBay a while ago to use for DIY fish tank led lights. First one I hooked up had an internal short and melted. Not sure if these are the same brand but be careful. I threw 50 pair in the trash.

Wow that sucks. I've had no problem with mine so far.

The bedding switches are good for what they are. But, if you want it to be reliable, you can't just use it "out of the box". I saw, you soldered some cables to the factory installed rail connectors. Are these exclusively for the motor? I soldered wires to each and every single rail on the turnouts to get a good electrical connection.

I'm not sure what you mean. Which motor are you referring to?

I'm referring to the turnout motor. I saw you installed a turnout/switch "motor". Are you running this motor from DCC track current or from an auxilliary bus?

Oh that's running off of a 15VDC power bus.

Since I no longer have a layout at home I thought it would make sense to make a couple of return loop modules for the straight ones I built. The first is not meant to go to shows - just quick and dirty with some staging. I'll think of something better for the second one.

Can you imagine what a huge, elongated and winding TT-Tracks layout is possible with these loops?! MIND BLOWING!!! :crazy: :thumbup:
I would love to see this happening one day, but I'm afraid my time is up (...I mean here in Canada!)
