Re: Rokuhan first impressions
Thanks for the info. It's little details like this that makes a difference. I actually had some pins and plugs that fit although I'd like to be able to buy the connectors and make the cables myself.

This will allow you to use any standard North American power pack with screw terminals.

Kato 24-841 is another extension with a a male plug at one end and a female socket at the other with red and black wiring. I use either of these and cut the thing in half and use one half with the female socket to connect to my MENDVEND controllers and provide a socket for the Rokuhan A002 to plug into. The other end I solder code 55 rail joiners removed from the Rokuhan track and them put them back in place with the male plug on the other end and it will plug into the Rokuhan controller or the socket on the end of Kato 24-843 There are other source of code 55 rail joiners from Marklin, Micro Engineering that will work also from Atlas, Micro Engineering, Marklin, Rokuhan A003 or RK003 from Intermountain can be used to the same purpose and manner as Kato 24-825 or 24-841. It is an extension for the track feed cable . There is another Kato item which might be useful. 24-827 it is a 3 into one cable and has 3 female sockets into which 3 track feed can be placed and then one connection to the power pack or to another 3 to one. So lots of options.
