Wire

Anybody have any suggestions for 2 conductor multi strand wire (black and red or white and red) to use for wiring a layout. Need 18 gauge and 16 gauge. I think it was O Gauge Railroader that us to sell some but no longer. Need 100 foot spools or 50 ft spools. I do not want to use the speaker wire that most are using. The wire I purchased from O Gauge Railroader was great. Black and red inside a gray sleeve. As usual anything good they stop making.

I caught a hot deal on Amazon for 18 gauge, red/black 40' spool and used it for my Christmas tree loops--very satisfied with the product.  IIRC it was under $10 with free shipping:

Is this copper clad aluminum which has twice the resistance or solid copper? There’s a lot of less expensive cu/al out there and it’s not well documented.

I use single 14 ga. stranded THWN/THHN. 

I have Red, Black & Green. 

I can use it to make power connections with Red & Black

Or, control like for a Turn out with Red, Black & Green  

and I cut to length-add 5 feet-then twist it with a drill  

I buy in 500’ spools, because I hate to run out- because it always seems like I run out of EXACTLY what I need when I have the TIME or MOTIVATION to do what I want/need to do-and the stores are closed
