    Excited to get started in HO,
    Does anyone have a recommendation for the best way to connect KATO HO uni-track to a non-KATO powerpack?
    Thanks,
    Stoyke

    I think Kato's P/N 24-818 and 24-823 are what you want. The item at the top connects to the track and plugs into the item at the bottom. The spade connectors connect to your non-Kato power pack.

    Howdy, neighbor. Well, actually, you're much closer to being a neighbor of my son and daughter-in-law who live in the Seward area of Minneapolis, right south of I 94.

    Anyway, welcome.

    Welcome to TrainBoard Stoyke! Was just looking at the same issue but in N scale. Trying to decide if I want to go the route Hardcoaler notes or just slice the feeder wires I have that are supposed to plug into the Kato power pack.

    If the OP is using the 2-151 feeder track (with power leads already attached), then only the 24-843 terminal adapter cord is needed to connect it to a non-Kato power pack.

    I am trying to attach the KATO unitrack to a digitrax-I saw a you tube video where the ends were just cut off and I think attached to the digitrax. I am so new at this I could be getting this all wrong. The adaptors I don't think will work.
