Hi All

I must admit I prefer the TCS decoder wire (you can buy little 10' packs of it), it is a little stiffer and will stay in place if bent to the shape you want . Very easy to strip without breaking wires and easy to solder. I find it much easier than the more flexible wires as they often have non conducting strands as well , to strengthen the cable , but make it harder to solder

The original wire off the older loco's tends to be quite stiff and still survives

Regards Zmil
