Big news today!
I've got the first loop of track installed AND I've successfully run a locomotive all the way around the layout.
That is the good news.
The bad news;
Its power with temporary wiring.
There are still two more loops to go
Lots of landscaping to do!
Soooo...the good news is that I run a train around the track.
It might be time to install an ad hoc control panel and run the permanent wiring.
