The Digitrax UP5 is much nicer though. It has two ports, a track power indicator, jump ports for Loconet hookups downline and that cool Digitrax logo. ;)

We used one standard phone plug for our West staging yard. It works fine in a little used, out of the way location. The main layout has UP3/5's.

If you go with phone plugs, be sure to get the 6 conductor type.
