I should be in a position to start laying track on my layout in a couple of weeks or so, although it probably be a long drawn out process, as will have to do some work on renovating the track pieces, which are mostly 60 to 70 years old (for the benefit of anyone reading this who hasn't seen any of my posts about my rolling stock and track, I'm using Hornby Dublo 3 rail track). The layout will be on three separate boards, now finished, which are then bolted together using 3/8" bolts and metal alignment dowels. I'm pretty certain I can tackle the wiring of the individual boards (maybe with a bit of trial and error), but I'm not sure about the electrical connections between the baseboards. I can solder tolerably well, but my soldering skills are such that methods that do not involve using a soldering iron do have a certain appeal to me. The method that I am leaning towards is using pluggable terminal blocks similar to this: Two sets of these at one end of each baseboard join should be sufficient. I also came across a reference on another forum to something called power poles, which are similar in function, but I'm not sure of exactly how they work or if they would be a better option. I was wondering if anyone had any comments, advice or recommendations regarding the various methods that can be used.
