What is the smallest gauge wire one should use when doing battery conversions on Spectrum Locomotives?

I probably wouldn't use anything smaller than 24-gauge wire for large scale installs for anything that's carrying power from batteries or to the motor. You can use smaller stuff for the lights and sound, down to 30-gauge. I use 24-gauge on the majority of my installs. My battery connector leads (the same ones used by Aristo, USA, etc.) are 22-gauge.

Later,
