Have a couple of simple questions regarding Bachmann EZ Track.
Although I have a lot of older (1970s vintage HO rolling stock), I am switching to N scale because I can get more railroad in the space I currently have available.
My plan is to do a fairly small table top layout to get started (probably 3 x 4 feet) and then when the basement room is finally free (darn kids taken a lot of room!) will move on to the big(ger) layout.
For the table top layout, I decided to go with the Bachmann EZ Track. It was a good mid-range choice (looked better than Life-Like, but not as good as Kato, but within the budget).
First question is: Since the layout will be more or less permanent, what is the best method of securing the track to the table top. I am planning on doing a insulation foam on top of plywood base. The track base will be on the foam, obviously. Not planning on anything fancy as far as scenary goes, although that could change.
Second question is: what a good way of powering the auxillary stuff, primarily the switches. The Bachmann switches come with a convenient wiring set up, but the small power controller does have the capability or the wiring hook up to power the switches. I've got some older controllers from my HO stuff with more traditional screw type terminals. Is there any reason those (assuming that they still work) or something like them wouldn't work for powering the switches? Or is there a better method?
Thanks in advance for the help
