  1. So I am using a DCS50K (Kato Part No. 29-119) DCC system to run my Japanese train layout. I currently am using the standard wire connectors and splitters that come with Kato track (Item No. 24-825 & 24-827). However, I am having issues with power drop and poor DCC single pick up by some of my locomotives. These wires use 22 gauge wire which is considered thin for a standard DCC power bus. I am thinking of making my own power bus using 14 gauge wire. However I need to make a custom plug so I can connect the power bus to my DCS50K. Does anyone know if you can purchase uncrimped versions of the plugs used by Kato so I can make my own power cables? If you can, what are the called and who makes them? Part number? Thank you in advance for your suggestions and help.
  2. I have a question to which I could not find a definitive answer to about KATO 20-652 Automatic Crossing Gate (the Japanese version, not the American version 20-652-1). http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10170394 What kind of power supply is supplied with this item in European, Asian, and American markets? Are they compatible/interchangeable with the KATO Powerpack power supplies? I have found out through experience that KATO provides (for the Powerpacks) two different 110V power supplies for the US and Japan, and NOCH provides a 230V power supply (they actually supplied two different ones, in 2016 they supplied the incorrect power supply with Powerpacks). Note that I am not talking about the different types of plugs; I do not care about those. For future moving reasons, I would like to own a 110V/230V power supply, or one of each. Thanks!
