Cutting grooves for wires

Model train layouts look really nice when the buildings and accessories light up. It is very easy to install wires at this time in our construction.

Mark out the path to your power pack location. On our layout that will be near the tunnel on the outside of the track. Use a razor blade or X-acto knife to cut a "V" shaped groove. Lay some 2 conductor wire to all the locations of your buildings. Use one continuous piece, but leave a loop where each building will be. This way you can tap into it later. Hold it in place with some small staples. Do the same for track and turnout power.
