Thanks, the dropper wires just look a little weedy next to the beefy bus cables!

I have gone through many different thoughts regarding getting power over the join, starting with: (car) door contact switches eBay; then on to 4 pin DIN sockets Maplin; then 4 pin Molex connectors; but I have finally settled on 4 pin ATX connectors eBay
I've got two (mainly for the length), I'll cut one end off each and connect it to the bus, then feed the connector through a hole in the supports.
I will be using all four wires, two for the main bus, and two for joining the ADS-8FX's. When I fully convert to DCC each ADS-8FX will be connected straight to the main bus.
