Title: #6 Single Crossover turnout
Post by: karlac on January 09, 2016, 05:38:15 PM
I am just built a N scale layout with one crossover. My problem now is the red and green wire that comes with it is too short
to reach my power pack and speed controller, how can I make the wire's longer to reach the power pack?

B-mann does sell extension cords for the switch machines. 

You can put the turnout controllers next to your power supply, so you will not need an extension for that.  You can buy green extension cords that go from the turnout to the controller boxes.   If you have more than one turnout, you can gang the controller boxes together simply by plugging one into the other.  This will get the electric to the boxes.  You then run the green extension from the top of each controller box to the cord that goes from the turnout.

You can easily extend wires by soldering new wires to the old ones and using heat shrink tubing. You can google this.
