I probably will not do too many reverse loops in the future.  For now I just need to make this one work for now.

Thanks again for the info.

 I am using a DC operatiion and the EZ track due to my small space.  I can assmble the track quickly into different layouts each time the grandsons come over for a visit making each time special.  When I retire I plan on either an N or Z scale that will be permanent and can build out as time goes by.

Regards,
Mike Basile

When looking at your sketch I noticed in the lower right hand corner that the turnou was slightly adjusted.  Can I assume that you were indicating that I need to gap in two places, not necessarily at those two, but gap the track on two sides of the turnout for best results.

thanks to the yardmaster and len for for their assistance.  Have ordered the kalmbach wiring book and will check out the nmra website.

I read somewhere that insulators could be used to gap the track but have not seen them anywhere.  I remember using them on my dad's o gauge track. 

I am using nickel/silver track.  Does this pose any unusual wiring dilemmas.

Regards,

new to e-z track.  I put together an oval track with a figure eight using standard left and right turnouts.  When power was hooked up I ended up with a track with no power. My grandsons and I were so disappointed when the  trains would not run.  I initially thought that my connector track was bad.  I ordered new connector tracks only to find out by trial and error that the assembled track was  the problem.    Is there an e-z track wiring book out there?
