Gerold, for connectors you might find these useful, especially with LED magnet wires needing connection.


https://www.dccconcepts.com/product/micro-harness-set-one-2-4-6-8-way/





I've used them on several locos and rolling stock and they work well.
You will see that they're available in 2, 4, 6 and 8 wire options, or a selection pack of each.

Doug,

They look good for loco - tender connections.
(Maybe that's even the stuff manufacturers use for their sound locos).
Thanks for the link!

The limit for me is now no longer the size available,
but that I have to be able to SEE them...

I have really tiny ones too,
but handling them is so difficult that I avoid them if possible.


BTW

My standard size connectors have a pin to pin (center) distance of 5mm,
like an 8 pin decoder harness. 

Do you know the respective size of those sold by dccconcepts?

Gerold, the blue boards are all 15.80mm long and 4.10mm deep at the socket.

The board widths are 12.90mm for the 8 wire, 10.55mm for the 6 wire,
8.80mm for the 4 wire and 6.5mm for the 2 wire units.

Hope this helps, and yes, loco/tender connections are the main use for me.

Hi Gerold  :wave:



I hope things are going well.  :thumb:  ???



The streetcars look fantastic out in the sun, on your trestle !  :cool:  :s:




You have 'the knack' for understated, yet stunning, paint jobs ...  :old dude:

... really nice colours on those cars & all your other work of course.  :)

Si, thanks for the praise...

Haven't posted for a while.... summer distractions...
and, I have started half a dozen projects simultaneously.

With the predictable result of little progress, great confusion and frustration....
Will start new threads so you will be entertained.

In the works,
a scratchbuilt 4-4-4-4 + 4-4-4-4 electric motor, similar to the Virginian EL-2B's,
a trolley shop switcher,
and two Frank Schlegel Interurbans...
and more.
