Re: Wiring a Helix for DCC

John Cahill
 

I have a similar helix and use threaded rod but never thought to use them as a bus. Interesting concept. I did stagger joints as it helped keep kinks out of the rails. I fed the busses up round the rods inside and outside for the two lines and wound them round the rods taking feeders off to each yard of track (don’t like soldering fishplates to track). Solder as usual to convenient spot on the rails. Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
John
