    Yes Ed he did solder the rail Joints a lot of people do it, I don’t think he was planning on installing lot of droppers to the DCC bus if any, it didn’t look like any bus was being installed just a link to the section of the old layout, so soldering the joints will make sure no spots for open circuits to occur.
    Even his auto reverse unit was linked to the adjacent track rails not a set of bus wires

    If you listen carefully, Ken doesn't solder, he sodders... :avatar::avatar:
