Power to the track
« on: April 02, 2019, 05:39:51 PM »
Hi all, I need some advice please, is it ok to use Graham Farish 379-480 power clips to get power to the track, I'm really not confident to solder the wires to the track, my plan was to drill some pilot holes in the baseboard and run the power clips up onto the track. Thanks

Hi and welcome.

I have used Peco power rail joiners, which work very well with my Peco Code 50 track.  Out of several dozen pairs, I have only had a couple where I have had to tighten them a little with a small pair of long-nosed pliers.
With kind regards

There is a better option.

They're easier to hide, just swop out a pair of rail joiners from which ever track code you use.

Those are exactly the ones I use.
