10/1/11 More Emergency Track Repairs
Every autumn it seems that the lower line develops rampant electrical issues with the coming cool weather. The cool weather causes the track to contract and intermittent dead spots develop. This year was no exception. The same section of track that gave me problems the last two years started acting up again. In past years I simply crimped the rail joiners. This year I opted for a more permanent solution. I installed a new set of feeder wires right in the middle of said dead spot. And that was the ticket, I can now creep my trains through without the slightest hiccup.
