Is there somewhere I can buy rerailer wire that has one end to connect to ez track and the other open end wires to connect to any dcc controller that isn't bachmann?

No, but you can just buy a bachmann feed wire and cut the plug off of it and strip the wires.

want fork connectors you can go to any autoparts store or the automotive section of most stores and buy a cheap crimp connector set that has every thing yo need to add the fork style connectors.

Or you can find a feed wire from an old set they used to have fork connectors on them, try eBay.

The wire you're looking for comes with the 9in straight and 18in radius curve terminal track sections. For reasons known only to Bachmann it is not available as a seperate purchase item.

Apparently Bachmann thinks these wires never go bad and have to be replaced. Or that people may want to upgrade from the train set controller with the phono plug jack, to an MRC power pack with screw terminals as their power needs grow.

At any rate, the wire you're looking for is available. Just not for seperate purchase.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

To clear things up I should say a Bachmann #44498 - 10' Terminal Extnsn Wire Red
just cut the plug off one end or at any length you need.

Here's one on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bachmann-44498-10-Terminal-Extnsn-Wire-Red-HO-/280791723200?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item41607dacc0

trackman-

You can also use any readily available, and incredibly more affordable, wire and just solder it to a rail joiner.
