# Unwanted faint lines connecting dashed double line

by wrtlprnft, I have the following code

   \documentclass[tikz,margin=1cm]{standalone}    \usetikzlibrary{decorations.markings}    \begin{document}    \begin{tikzpicture}         \tikzstyle{arrowed double line}=[             dashed, double distance between line centers=3pt,             postaction=decorate,             decoration={                 markings,                 mark=between positions 10pt and -10pt step 20pt with {                     \arrow[thin,yshift= 1.5pt,xshift=.8pt]{>}                     \arrow[thin,yshift=-1.5pt,xshift=.8pt]{<}                 },             },         ]         \draw[arrowed double line] (0,0) --  (1,2);     \end{tikzpicture} \end{document} 


which produces this:

I am unhappy with the faint transverse lines between the dashes. I don't even know why tikz decides to draw them.

Is there a way to get rid of them?

Thanks in advance to all replies.

PS the same thing occurs at the caps of double solid lines
