Re: Re : [Z_Scale] hello from a newbie
I do about the same, but I don't worry about every two sections. I've never
noticed a power drop even with over 12 feet of track off one feeder.
We both must be doing something right. Maybe holding our lips right?
Anyway, it works fine.

You can't have too much, other than creating more work for yourself. Similar
to Dom, I solder my rails together, but I only put feeders roughly every two
MTL flex tracks. I don't solder to the joiners as I find it difficult to
make the track, drill the holes accurately, and lay the track...I'm just not
that good. I lay the track then solder the wire to the outside of the rail.
With a good flux, tinned ends, and a little practice, they practically
disappear. I use 22-24ga for my feeders, 18ga for buss. Nothing magic, just
what I have and it seems to work.
