      Its also worth checking the motor will spin if you turn the worm by hand
      - sometimes thats even enough to unjam an old motor and begin to get it
      back going again.

        Eddie,
        I've re-posted you image with notes for VERY basic electrical wiring:
        http://f1.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/5BtjUf9l_FNTYSrrpfzvrBR96WPmnKXWC_gTIB0w_7jIFEw5pBQazIqlYjX5Obhzz0_Sgpi0URYeUzkhcg8ERSv99IDLUL2Y_HWbWn9C3HG6p1PUDNmnkg/Marklin_81865_set_2_loops_layout%20elec.jpg

        There's a lot of ways of doing this, including adding the Marklin track swicthes to make the operation automatic to auto-sensing reversing circuits.

        For a quick interesting layout I've always liked a figure-eight folded over at the crossing (either over/under or the 13-degree track).

        Mark
