I used two wires, 16 gauge, and ran them like jumpers.  This is not the ideal solution.  I rewired the railroad last summer with outdoor lighting wire, I think 14 gauge, and ran from a termnal to each power point.  This works much better and I have seen improvement in operating.  

Next question for you: Brass or Stainless?  I prefer stainless and have not had to clean the track (compared to brass) nearly as much.  I use an Aristo track cleaning car to get dirt and stuff off the track, and the trains run and run and run.  Brass is much more time consuming since the oxidation does not conduct electricity.
