Re: Bus Wiring....


I thought this discussion on N scale track buses would be a good time to remind readers that the key to knowing if your wiring is adequate, is the quarter test.  If your wiring passes the quarter test, you are good to go.  This test will ensure that your booster will safely shutdown rather than melt down your locomotive.  Real Alcos should smoke, model ones shouldn’t!
