I need a few feet of that very thin insulated cable that is used in locos to wire up a tender-loco link; that which is on locos I have measures 0.4mm on the vernier, but I can't seem to find any of the usual suppliers selling it. Can anybody recommend anywhere?

This seems to be known as decoder wire so if you search for this you should find sources. Probably have to buy more than you need, perhaps a decoder specialist will sell you a short length?

Thanks Andrew; found some decoder wire which 0.55mm which should do. Also referred to as 'Ultra Fine'. Thanks for your help.

Hi there, wire is often sold by 'gauge (swg)' or cross sectional area (csa) was the 0.4 measurement the diameter, or had you already calculated the cross sectional area?

It's worth checking before placing an order :)
