My First Layout hey guys, im kinda new at all this and have some questions about electrical blocks on my layout. above is the track plan for a 3x5 layout im planning on making, which i got from this site: http://users.iafrica.com/c/ca/caroper/tutorial/ its basically a tutorial on how to plan a N scale layout and mine is the second stage of it. heres a link to my exact one: http://users.iafrica.com/c/ca/caroper/tutorial/operations.htm its the third image down. now i can see that in that layout its been split into several blocks, but thats because at that point it was meant to run 2 different trains. i plan on only running one train for now. so i need to know wether i will need to seperate the track into any blocks or can i just plug the whole thing straight to the power pack? will those dead ends cause any short circuits or anything? id like it if you guys could tell me where i have to put insulated rail joiners and how i should wire the thing. PS: eventually it will get expanded a little to run 2 trains and thus be blocked up. once i get to 3 trains then im going to rewire this thing for DCC. but for now this is my first layout so i just wanted something simple, thats why i just copied one off the net.
