Something else to keep in mind, a small percentage of wall warts are AC, and therefore not usable without a rectifier to make it DC.

I'd say the reason for so many "issues" posted is that, aside from build threads, most people don't post when things are running well.

I liked it. It could have been better if the snow was drier, and it was a rotary instead of a plow.

I have the same set. My only suggestion, if you're running DC, is to find out which one is faster, and make it the A. The frames are the same, so swapping them is no sweat.

If you're unsure of whether it's steel or N/S, use a magnet. A magnet won't stick to N/S track. And then, ditch the steel, regardless of condition.

Seems to me that's more of an addition than a change. But I do tend to be a little pedantic.

I wish I'd have weighed in sooner. I'm thinking the 1/4" idea is best. And you don't need 2X4s to brace it. 1X is plenty to flatten it out, and say 1X2 would keep the height down for the sofa part....

Does it sound like what you might hear from a fire/rescue station radio? As a former Motorola radio salesman, I can say that those may be a multi tone signalling sound. It was used (before digital...

To be able to see what may be going on, you might try a single axle to roll across the turnout. A car, or even a truck can obstruct the view. My guess is that the turnout may have an obstruction...

Before doing anything, I'd start by making some drawings of what your layout might look like. A room that size lends itself to many possibilities.
