You've hijacked the thread, this is no longer about MERG Cbus. It's good form to raise your own new topic instead (by hijacking, you've ensured that those who aren't interested in MERG won't see your posting, as it's filed under "MERG Cbus")).

Here's another table that will help you with wire gauge to
Here's a page on a site by Mark Gurries, an EE with significant
DCC experience, with a lot of info about bus and DCC wiring; it's
complementary to the wiring4DCC website, but gets at the
underlying reasons a bit differently.
You haven't told us how large your layout is or what it's
topography is (4x8 oval, basement filling "E" or "W", double deck,
multiple yards, etc.); these things have huge effects on the
lengths of run and likely current consumption, so it's very hard
to tell you if your wiring choices are appropriate or not. It's
likely your layout is on the smaller side, and your choices are
therefore okay, but I'm guessing at that.
