    I am not familiar with the metric measurements for wire, but generally speaking, you need to run the larger wire from the power source (power pack, booster, or whatever you call it) to the (short) feeders that power the rails. If you have a separate command unit (base station?) I am unsure, as I use a Digitrax Zephyr (all-in-one).

    I would guess it would not hurt to use the larger wire to connect the two. What does the manual say?

    I hope that helps - not much of an answer, but I see you are in a hurry... ;)
