This large DCC power bus starter wiring kit allows a proper electrical power bus to be created for your larger DCC model railway layout. You are required to solder the dropper wires to the track, and the two components of the filter kits together. No further soldering is required below the baseboard.

If you are using any sort of power booster you should use this large DCC bus wiring kit.

Wiring can be run under or above the baseboards.

The wire in this kit is hand measured and cut, so please allow up to 3% difference in lengths.

Instructions are included for connector use and filter kit assembly and fitting.

Instruction on how to fit the termination kits and how to use the scotchlok style connectors can be found here.

If you would like the wires in other colours, please use the order comments area on the checkout pages when completing your order to let us know which two colours you would like. All wire sizes are available in black, blue, brown, green, grey, orange, pink, purple, red, white, and yellow at no extra cost.
