No reason why not, and I think you'd be well advised to consider nickel-silver for all the track, brass is a PITA to keep clean!

GRJ is right. You can certainly do it. It won't hurt anything. I did on my first post-haitus layout.

But with brass's non-conductove oxide and DCC's lower tolerance for dirty track, I found that I had to clean the track about every other day. That's a PITA.
