What gauge wire is used on fast track remote switches?
Replies sorted oldest to newest
It looks like 24 gauge solid wire to me. Bought the package shown in the photo from Lowe’s. Has same 4 wire colors as Fastrack. Side by side looks and feel is the same. Can’t show comparison photo because I’m still on a business trip until next weekend.
24ga phone cable is the same as the Fastrack wire.
If you are looking to replace the remote switch wire with a longer wire, 4-colour phone cable is perfect. The phone cable I use is 22ga (I think). Has the same Red, Black, Green and Yellow colours as the lionel fastrack switch controller. You can purchase from many places. I purchased mine from an electrical supply store, where the sell it in 1000ft boxes. The 1000ft box was only a little more expensive than purchasing a few 100ft lengths.
