We have several electrical wiring pieces that are showing wear where they attach
to the brick (especially for the trains). Is there something that can be used
to cover the exposed wire other than black electrical tape.
Thanks

The best way to deal with these is to find someone that knows how to solder and
replace the wires completly (I know people who have done that to their 9v train
connecting wires for example)

Use black liquid electrical paint. It sells in the electrical dept at Home Depot
near the black tape. It has a small paint brush in the lid of the container.
Paint it over the dried spots in the 9 volt wire.
