Re: No soldering required for under layout DCC bus wire splices?

There is lots of stuff in use for low voltage electronics that would not be acceptable for residential 120/240v use -- regardless of its insulation breakdown ratings. That really should not be a consideration, IMHO. As long as the line voltage portions of the layout are to code the rest of it -- past the step-down transformer, just needs to be appropriate for low voltage control. And it is in the builders interest to have current limiting protection -- power districting and local power supply fuses simply because of the fire potential of a low voltage short and the cost of replacing expensive components. Besides -- the layout should be powered through an AC extension cord (or several) so it can be disconnected, not tied into the mains.
