Alright. Yesterday I went to the local model train show hoping to get a new engine so I could start my planning around the road name on the engine, but I came up with this. My first thought when I saw this was "Oh golly. This would be perfect", and it was because I have no experience in laying flextrack at all, so I bought it. It was only $60, and it came with an operational transformer (not the one in the picture) and a box with 6 more pieces of flextrack and a lot of wires/cables. Now, the wiring on the layout now is just temporary, and I will have to wire it myself this spring break when I get the switches. The thing is that I just don't know how to connect the wires to the track and make it look good. I can't add in the little connectors made by atlas because the track is all ready glued in. Also, the track is all split up into different segments by insulators. I mapped it out onto microsoft paint here. The red track is going to be controlled by one transformer and the blue track will be powered by another. The different shades go with the main color, and all sections will be hooked up through a switch. The X's represent the insulators. The one siding on the blue line isn't insulated, but oh well. If you guys have a different plan for this, please tell me. This is the first layout I have ever had, so I am not the professional. (I would have said "my layout", but I didn't lay down the track) Ok. Now, remember, I really don't know how to connect the wires to the track. How do you guys do it? Thanks a ton for reading through this all. I hope to keep everybody updated on it. It will be a lot of fun.
