I am helping a chap build a 'round the walls' layout, I suggested a single track across a hinged section as the entry point, because I've done them before.
Now we have an outer raised section crossing the gap via a bridge and he also wants a 'ground level' inner line passing across a level crossing. Never done this myself.
Plan A is now a drop-in section, using locating posts on the removable section, mating with holes in the baseboard lip.
Nowhere to put it down when he is using his walking stick(s), so power to be supplied to the track will require a feed without tethering wires, have to hand some brass I can rebate-in but was wondering about using brass tube soldered to outside of the rail (inside the web) on the lift out section. These would then 'clip' onto the rail at either end as the section dropped into position.
I avoids the (time consuming) rebating of brass strip and offers alignment of the track.
Anyone think this is a Really Bad Idea?
