Re: Protecting bus to feeder connections
An other option are "suit case" connectors, no stripping, already insulated, $0.05 each.
If you want to use shrink tubing, instead of a butt joint, strip all three wires, twist, solder, and slip the tubing over the end.
Then there are PVC terminal strips for insulation displacement screws:
I use them on my friend's layout and they worked great.

I am new to DCC, although I have been accumulating 'stuff' for 20 years - HO scale, so I have lots of questions, most pretty basic. Since the bus to feeder connection is a 'T' and precludes the use of shrink tubing, is liquid electrical tape appropriate for this use? Do most of you use some form of protection for this solder junction?
