booster cable.

Sometimes people connect electrical cables from their 'power-section' to sections that are further away from the transformers (for example for every five meter track). The reason is that it then helps to even the distribution of power over the track. Since for every section you add to your track you have one more connection and there is a risk that you over each connection loose a bit of contact and so if you connect a cable in parallel to your track to sections further away you 'bypass' a number of connections. This could give you a better and more reliable power all over the track, should be more noticable the larger track you have. You could use normal 'household' electrical cable. But whatever you use as a cable just be careful with the polarities because you do not wish to fry anything by mixing the plus and minus poles by mistake...
