Feeders

One feature of hand laying track is that you have easy access to the bottom of the rail, at least before you spike it down. I take advantage of this to solder my track feeders to the bottom of each piece of rail before I spike it down. I drill a hole directly under where the rail will go between two ties and feed the wire through. After ballasting, the feeders will be entirely hidden with no odd lumps to explain away.feeder
