That power supply was one of the best things I bought for my Scaley track. You really need to bite the bullet and wire it right. Eliminate the power base and wire it directly to the track. Go to Slot...

I've kept that in the back of my mind. I'm waiting to see, once we get it all cleaned if we have any conductivity issues. So far, the pieces we've cleaned seem to work fine.
