Bob, I think I now get your point. When you talk about cutting the track, and soldering between insulated joiners, I take it you mean you are able to use a single piece of flextrack from one insulated join to the next, hence the need to power a "whole" piece of track. So you need to cut the piece of track to put in the terminal joiner to power that piece. Am I on the right track? I (and others I think) have assumed there were multiple pieces of track and you were terminal joining each piece, even within the one block. I don't have the track plan book you refer too. Do you have a layout plan on the net? With Garahbara, even though it is small, i decided to have at least "one of everything" on it, to use as a learning project, and be prepared to junk the whole thing if I stuffed it up! So far, so good. **Fingers crossed** I'd love to be your inhouse consultant... however from Sydney might be a bit far for just an arvo visit!! TOOT!
