It's amazing what one solder spot will do for you

HI
After rearranging some track for better curves etc, I left all my dcc wire drop loops disconnected and nothing wanted to run right. Today I resoldered a couple spots of drops to main feeder and boy did that help. I am just running a switching layout but I guess it really mattered that I have better connections. I tried about 6 diesels and they all ran great.

feeders or drops as they are known, do make a difference on some layouts, especially the bigger ones , i have feeders -about- every three feet, just on the track, none on the turnouts ..
