A model railroad only runs well if it has smooth, trouble-free track. Learn how to lay flextrack and turnouts with confidence, as well as wire it for good electrical operation. Also, the MR staff will teach you how to install and wire switch motors as they work on the HO scale Thin Branch project railroad.
After an introduction to the topic we 1) Install cork roadbed, 2) Lay track, 3) Solder rail joints and then 4) Begin wiring. We wrap up with a lesson on how to 5) Install a switch motor and 5) Power turnout frogs. A lot of fun and a lot of information!
