    Hello, new guy here.

    I've started with N gauge using the Bachmann EZ Track. I'm hoping it will all work
    out, it just seemed that the EZ track would be good for my space & construction.

    I'm trying to understand how one can 'block' track sections with this EZ track.

    I've seen the Atlas rail joiners, electrical & insulated, and the terminal joiners and how
    you can also use the Atlas selectors. But there are '55' and '80' types so I'm not so
    sure now. Seems that Bachmann should sell there own stuff. Bachmann has those
    under-the-track straight terminal track & the curved terminal rerailer pieces so I
    wonder if these are used for track blocking. Can they be used both for your electrical
    hookups to your powerpack 'and' to isolate your track sections (and your use of the
    insulated rail joiners ?).

    Am I going about this all wrong ? Help !

    Much thanks.
