magnet wire

I just wondered why I don't see/hear questions about using magnet wire.  Are there reasons to avoid such wire or is it a matter of convenience in handling or some other factors??

I use it regularly on the surface mount style LEDs.

34 AWG magnet wire is rated for 300mA and therefore should be usable for most applications in a locomotive.

I recently discovered TEMCO brand magnet wire.  They have an insulator that is designed to be removed by soldering.

34 AWG Copper Magnet Wire MW0085 - 2 oz Magnetic Coil Red Soderon 155

The price is reasonable, and shipping is free.
