Only a few minor updates to report on the layout. I secured all the remaining track on the first level in the area of the closet extension. I once again used zip ties to help prevent with the sound being transferred into the plywood.
As you can see in the first photo above, I also drilled and installed the feeder wires for the track power. Added a few more since I’m going to have isolated track sections throughout the yard extension. At the end of the yard I simply installed spade connectors in the tracks and draped the feeder wires over the back edge in the closet.
More updates to come down the line! Happy Railroading Everyone!
Rich- nice progress. The tie-wraps are a good idea. Looks like you are keeping your credit card busy too.
One word of caution regarding the spade connector on the center rail. Just make sure it's not going to touch the tie or you will have a dead short in no time.
