I am a TOTAL newbie to model railroading. At this point my interest is very limited, and for that I apologize. I already have other hobbies that consume a lot of time and interest. Who knows, I may get hooked on this like you are. I also apologize that despite several attempts with the search feature, I couldn't find this question, I assume it's been answered many times before. I want to set up a simple oval of Kato Unitrack, permanently mounted to an appropriately-sized board, for the cliche' purpose of having a train running around the Christmas tree. We had terrible problems with a previous Bachmann HO setup. I have the K1 basic track set, and a 22-014 power pack. The track set came with no instructions whatsoever. The power pack has some basic instructions, but it assumes that a step has been taken that I don't know the best way to accomplish. How do you attach the power wires to the S62F track piece? I unscrewed the little plastic plate on the underside, it popped off, one of the little copper wires went flying, and I spent 40 minutes before I located it. It appears that one is supposed to solder the bare ends of the power wires to the bare copper wires clipped in to this little plastic plate. Is there another method? I don't have a solder gun. Twisting the wires together seems doomed to failure, and I don't think they make wire nuts this tiny. Googling and following lots of links, one person recommended something called "dry epoxy", I've never heard of it and wonder if it works, and if so, where do you buy it? The track set also has a blue plastic piece that has a cross-shaped hole at one end. I failed this IQ test totally... what is it for??? Thanks for your patience.
